Surrey is one of the fastest growing cities in British Columbia, attracting both students and families, but why should you start your training in Surrey? Surrey is located in the heart of the lower mainland and less than a 45 minute drive to the most populated city in the province, Vancouver. Being so close to the 3rd largest city in Canada creates a wealth of potential experiences for one to enjoy; for everything from professional sports teams (NHL- Vancouver Canucks, MLS- Vancouver Whitecaps, CFL- B.C. Lions) to the 400 hectare Stanley Park located along the Seawall there are plenty of attractions within Vancouver. Surrey offers plenty of entertainment in its own right as well. Surrey is home to two top 100 public golf courses in Canada (including one designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer), one of the best beaches in the region (Crescent Beach), and regularly hosts large events in Holland Park for the community.
But why should you consider studying in Surrey? Other than the location, the beautiful views, and the many events, Surrey is quickly expanding to create more opportunities for everyone. According to Surrey’s Economic Business Development report, Surrey has seen an increase in population which has directly correlated with an increase in construction targeted towards students and young families who want to experience living in Vancouver without paying the high costs of living in Vancouver. The city of Surrey has many industries which have provided such growth including clean energy, manufacturing, health, and education. Surrey has quickly become an economic staple to the province, and with its cultural diversity along with attractions for everyone in the family, Surrey provides an excellent opportunity for students to experience everything the province has to offer.
