Our Story

Welcome to DIVERSEcity, serving Surrey, Langley, Delta and White Rock

If you are new to Canada and want a personalized, caring approach, you have found the right place.

DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society is a registered charity devoted to helping newcomers to Surrey, Delta, Langley and White Rock. For 40 years we have focussed on providing specialized services for newcomers, most of which are free of charge. We offer assistance such as free transit tickets and child-minding services, as well as subsidies of various kinds.

DIVERSEcity is a client-centred organization committed to quality and accountability. We value growth, respect, integrity and compassion. Our promise is that you will be treated as a valuable member of the community who we will welcome with open arms. You deserve every opportunity to become independent and successful and to feel appreciated and connected in your new country and community.

In most cases, services are provided in your language and by someone who has experienced life in Canada as an immigrant. Our service providers are on your side and will actively seek out opportunities and solutions that work for you.
