Leading the BC construction industry into the future.
The construction and technology sectors of BC collectively contribute 15% of BC’s GDP and employ 350,000 British Columbians, offering average wages higher than all other goods and services sectors except oil and gas. Together we employ nearly 20% of British Columbians.
As population growth brings increased demands for affordable housing and sustainable built environments, with pressures of global competition for local construction projects and skilled workers, and with infrastructure construction a priority at all levels of government, technology-based innovation in the construction sector is critical for success.
As BC emerges as a world-leader in the technology sector, offering sustainable, globally-relevant solutions as well as rewarding careers for British Columbians, private-sector industry support can provide essential market intelligence and validation, as well as the potential for increased visibility to investors.
