2021 Census Fact Sheets

Snapshot of the Indigenous Population in Surrey

The Indigenous Population in Surrey is young and diverse. While there are improvements in education, income and housing, progress still needs to be made to achieve SUILC's vision.


Welcome to the Indigenous Population Fact Sheets for Surrey. This collection of fact sheets provides a snapshot of the Indigenous population living in Surrey based on data from the 2021 Census of the Population (Census). The fact sheets summarize and visualize key findings on salient topics, including: demographics, children and youth, education, income, and housing. 

To contextualize the findings, it’s important to note that the 2021 Census was conducted during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although data quality for the region remained strong, the COVID-19 pandemic likely influenced the value of certain variables temporarily, like income, employment, and cost of living. Still, the Census presents a valuable snapshot of the Indigenous population in Surrey at a unique point in history.
