The Now newspaper, also referred to as Surrey Now, was a tabloid established in 1984 that publishes twice a week with local news on Surrey, North Delta and White Rock in the Canadian province of British Columbia.[2]

In 2015, Glacier Media sold The Now to Black Press.[3] Also in 2015, Now reporter Amy Reid received the S. Tara Singh Hayer journalism award due to work highlighting needs of homeless people.[4]

In March 2017, Black Press, publisher of The Now and The Surrey Leader, announced that the two papers would be merged into a single paper as of April 5, 2017. The merged paper was announced as The Surrey Now News-Leader.[5]
