The Surrey Board of Trade has long advocated for affordable and accessible childcare for the working families of Surrey.

We are aware of some of the issues that hamper a stable and productive workforce when childcare choices are not readily available for families.

We invite both employers and employees to take our brief survey to better inform our efforts. We will share the results of the survey when complete, and plan future conversations about how we can support solutions for Surrey's workforce and business community.

The survey should take no more than 2-3 minutes. However, if you have more to say than available space, please share your thoughts by email to our Policy & Research Manager, Anne Peterson.

Thank you!
