DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society (DIVERSEcity) is a registered not for profit agency offering a wide range of services and programs to the culturally diverse communities of the lower mainland.

DIVERSEcity was established in 1978 (under its founding name of SURREY DELTA IMMIGRANT SERVICES SOCIETY (SDISS)) and has over three decades of service to the community.

DIVERSEcity prides itself on its well-founded expertise in assisting immigrants and new Canadians in their integration into their new community.

Our services delivery areas are:

  • Settlement and Community Programs
  • Language Training and Literacy Programs
  • Employment Services and Skills Training Services
  • Counselling Services
  • Programs for Children and Youth
  • Interpretation and Translation Services 

Our programs continue to expand and change to reflect the unique needs of the diverse community we serve. We have a strong commitment to raising awareness of the economic and cultural contributions immigrants make to Canadian society, and to raising awareness of the value of diversity.

The Society is accredited with the Council on Accreditation (www.coanet.org).
