Thousands of immigrants from all parts of the world are choosing Surrey as their home each year. These individuals bring experience, skills, training and education from a broad spectrum of occupational backgrounds. In addition to skills and experience, these newcomers have linguistic and cultural competencies that will assist employers to better understand their newest customers and their needs and will support employers to better connect and serve customers from a range of backgrounds.
