Surrey-Whalley is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia, Canada. The riding's name was resurrected from a former riding in the same area, with similar but not identical boundaries. The newly created riding of Surrey-Whalley kept the majority of the original Surrey-Whalley riding and added a portion of Surrey-Green Timbers.[1]

Member of Legislative Assembly[edit]

On account of the realignment of electoral boundaries, most incumbents did not represent the entirety of their listed district during the preceding legislative term. Its MLA is Bruce Ralston. He was first elected in 2005, and was re-elected in the 2009 election. He represents the British Columbia New Democratic Party.
