A West Coast Innovation Hub

Ideas and opportunities come to life in British Columbia (B.C.), Canada, due to a strong focus on growing technology and innovation within the province. Programs, such as InnovateBC, are funded by the provincial government to help companies choose B.C. to thrive and grow. A well-educated, skilled, and flexible workforce of more than 2.4 million workers, many with an education from our world-class post-secondary institutions, help businesses embed and embrace innovation and become competitive, locally and globally.

The B.C. government has developed a Technology and Innovation Policy Framework to cultivate industry clusters — geographically connected groups — throughout the province, with diverse, engaged, and skilled employees.
