  • Canadian Newcomers Attracted to Vancouver Suburb of Surrey

    Growing numbers of people who immigrate to Canada are moving to the Vancouver suburb of Surrey in search of a brighter future. Located southeast of Vancouver in the Canadian province of British Columbia, Surrey has a population of approximately 470,000 and it has become a popular destination for foreign nationals after they are approved for Canadian immigration and receive their Permanent Resident (PR) Visa to Canada.


    Many people who immigrate to Canada choose to settle in Vancouver, which has a large immigrant population and was ranked as one of the top ten “Most Livable Cities in the World” in 2013, 2012 and 2011 by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). Although Vancouver is a great place to live, the cost of living is lower in neighboring Surrey and so many people who immigrate to Canada are discovering the extra value and opportunities available in the province’s second largest city. In fact, around 1,200 people each month are moving to Surrey, many of whom were approved for Canadian immigration or are the children of immigrants.


    As Canada’s gateway to the Pacific Rim region, many foreign nationals who are issued a PR Visa to Canada move to British Columbia since it is closer to Asia. Thus, a large percentage of people who immigrate to Canada and settle in British Columbia originate from such countries as India, Pakistan, Iran, Russia, China, Vietnam, South Korea and Japan, among other places. While these Canadian newcomers may have originated from diverse countries, the majority decided to immigrate to Canada so they and their families could find better opportunities.


    One of these Canadian immigration success stories belongs to Sunny Khurana, whose family chose to immigrate to Canada from South Asia and then established a prosperous business in Vancouver known as the Guru Bazaar. Sunny has been running the family business for many years and has noticed that much of his South Asian clientele has made the move from Vancouver to nearby Surrey. Consequently, he recently re-located his company to Surrey, to follow his customers and also to enjoy the favorable business climate found in Surrey. Since making the move to Surrey, this successful business owner says that he has realized a good return on his investment and seems pleased with his decision. Whether you move to Vancouver, settle in Surrey, travel to Toronto or make your home in Montreal, Canadian immigration offers great chances for social mobility and the freedom to pursue one’s dreams.
