Surrey is a city in the province of British Columbia, Canada. It is a member of the Metro Vancouver regional district and metropolitan area. Mainly a suburban city, Surrey is the province's third largest city by area and also the fastest growing city in British Columbia. Smaller than only Abbotsford and Prince George in terms of land area, and the second-largest city by population after the city of Vancouver. Surrey is composed of 6 major areas; Guildford, Newton, Cloverdale, South Surrey, Fleetwood and City Centre.
Surrey was incorporated in 1879, and encompasses land that was formerly occupied by Halqemeylem-speaking aboriginal groups. The area then comprised forests of douglas-fir, fir, red cedar,hemlock, blackberry bushes, and cranberry bogs. A portion of present-day City Centre was used as a burial ground by the Kwantlen Aboriginal Nation.
Early settlers arrived in Cloverdale and later parts of South Surrey, mostly to farm, fish, harvest oysters, or to set up small stores. Once the Pattullo Bridge was erected in 1937, the city was able to expand much larger. Post ware Surrey became a bedroom community to Vancouver in the late 1950's.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Surrey witnessed unprecedented growth, as people from different parts of Canada and the world, particularly Asia, began to make the municipality their home. Surrey is projected to surpass the city of Vancouver as the most populous city in BC by 2020-2030, which earns it the title of being the most rapidly growing city in British Columbia.
As of 2006, the population of Surrey was 394,976, a 13.6% increase from 2001. The non-minorities population is 211,445, or 53.9% of the city's population. The foreign-born population is 150,235, constituting 30.3% of the city's population, primary being of South Asian. The City of Surrey estimated that 508,040 residents lived within its municipality in 2014 which is set to only grow, especially with the newly proposed Surrey Light Rail line which is expected to begin operation in late 2018.
