WCCD President and CEO Dr. Patricia McCarney welcomed the city, highlighting its commitment to open date and sustainability.
“It is my pleasure to welcome the City of Surrey to the World Council on City Data as an ISO 37120 platinum certified city. In addition to being the fifth Canadian city certified, Surrey is also the first city certified in British Columbia and in fact, in western Canada. The dedication of Mayor Hepner, the Council and city staff to open, standardized and comparable city data will help to increase quality of life for all citizens while driving evidence based decision making and data driven solutions. The City of Surrey stands out in Canada and globally as a leader in working to create a more sustainable, resilient, inclusive and prosperous future for its residents.”
