Surrey White Rock Community Engagement Society is a non-profit, non-partisan organization with the mission of building bridges between people of all cultural heritage through education and events, encouraging immigrants of Chinese and other ethnic origins to embrace and participate in our community, and enhancing the Canadian multicultural identity. We serve people who need guide and help to merge into our community life and activities.
Since its establishment, SWRCES has been organizing the monthly bilingual (English and Chinese) Cornerstone Community Forum with local politicians and prominent members of our community as keynote speakers educating attendees about the 3 levels of governments, social and community organizations, local business and issues of public concern. The society is working to expand its mandate to include community engagement of all cultures at all levels.
We are proud that our society is the first of its kind and is building bridges and a channel of communication between the local residents especially newcomers and Canadians of different cultures.
