• 2019 Federal Election

  • The South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce works with all levels of government to help support and promote policy choices that encourage business development. The Chamber also sees it as important that the public has the necessary resources to make informed decisions when they go to the polls during an election period. With the federal election scheduled for Monday, October 21st, we co-hosted a debate and have also created this page with useful links and information.
     
    We would like to congratulate Kerry-Lynne Findlay of the Conservative Party of Canada for being elected as our riding's Member of Parliament-elect in the 2019 Canadian federal election and we would like to thank all the candidates who put their names forward during this election cycle for their efforts and willingness to run for office.
