Surrey is often heralded as the city that will drive BC’s future prosperity. Surrey is rich in natural and human resources, particularly our youth. Surrey is the province’s youngest city. It is home to over 77,600 school aged children and a further 23,437 under the age of four. One in three residents is under 19.
Despite this bounty of youth and vitality, investment in health services for children have lagged population growth.
Surrey Hospitals Foundation is calling on the community to support child and youth mental health treatments and the next phase of the Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
