Manufacturing continues to play a vital role in our diverse economy. 14,300 British Columbians work in high-tech manufacturing, and 8,300 in Canada’s largest and most robust aerospace sector.
In five years, your government has contributed over $1 million to meet manufacturers’ needs, invested over $5 million on a strategy to continue growth in aerospace, and delivered four sessions with industry leaders to identify opportunities and emerging challenges.
The work is not done. Your government will continue to connect manufacturing companies with new markets, and work with the federal government to build an aircraft simulation and training facility in Comox
