Here’s proof Surrey really is on track to be the largest city in BC!

The latest census data from Statistics Canada shows the city’s population has gone up almost 10% between 2016 – 2021 to a population of now just over 568,000.

Vancouver meanwhile saw a less than 5% increase, their population just over 662,000.

Personally, I’m not that surprised.

As a born and bred Surrey gal, I can remember way back when when 64th avenue was single lane each way, now it’s four lanes and gridlock 24-7!

That, and now when you go to the Surrey Costco even on a Wednesday morning, the cars are backed all the way to King George….and that’s just for the $1.50 hotdogs! If that’s not a sign of population growth, I don’t know what is!

Check out how other cities did (Turns out Langley Township and Kelowna saw the largest population spike!)
