Northern BC Economic Development

Vision and Strategy Project



The Northern BC Economic Development Vision and Strategy Project will coordinate a set of meetings to collect the input and recommendations of a diverse set of stakeholder groups. Through a series of individual interviews and facilitated workshops, this input will focus around the key issues of a northern vision, supportive policy development, community and infrastructure investment, and regional coordination.

The purpose of this project is to undertake a community driven process that will review the key challenges and opportunities relative to the economic development and diversification of northern BC communities. The goal is to produce a report which identifies a framework for action aimed at creating the mechanisms necessary to engage, mobilize, and coordinate key resources and stakeholders for the creation of a northern economic development strategy.
