Surrey is bordered by the Fraser River to the north, the Corporation of Delta to the west, Semiahmoo Bay, the City of White Rock and the US border to the south, and the Township and City of Langley to the east. Surrey was incorporated in 1879 and achieved city status in 1993.

Area wise, Surrey is a very large Canadian municipality, and has varied geographical features, including areas of low‐lying farmland, and pockets of undeveloped, forested land. Much of Surrey has suburban residential development, with regional shopping and services catering to the many neighbourhoods and communities. Surrey has approximately 35% of its land mass designated under the Agricultural Land Reserve, with farming still a significant industry. Surrey is also known as one of the most ethnically diverse cities in Canada, with a visible minority population of over 46% of Surrey’s total.
Major industries in Surrey include technology firms, industrial and manufacturing, retail trade, health care and educational services. The key transportation corridors include the Trans‐Canada Highway and Highway 99, which connect Surrey to the surrounding communities as well as providing access to the US border.
