The Surrey Board of Trade is making businesses #SurreyStrong. Since the beginning of the pandemic, locally owned businesses have been shattered, but they are the economic backbone of our communities. By supporting local businesses, your purchase has 4.6 times more impact:
Locally owned businesses keep 63% of revenue circulating in our community compared to only 14% by multinationals
Locally owned businesses create 8 times more jobs
Locally owned businesses donate 25 times more to charities
