Surrey-Tynehead is a newly formed 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-Tynehead has reserved just over half of the existing Surrey-Tynehead riding and added portions of Surrey-Whalley, and Surrey-Green Timbers.[1]
