The impact of British Columbia’s mining industry extends far beyond the mine sites and rural communities where it operates. In Surrey, there are more than 160 companies that supply BC’s mining industry with goods and services, bringing in more than $76.5 million a year to the local economy. Regionally, the mining sector purchases more than $500 million worth of goods and services from business across Metro Vancouver. At the provincial level, more than 125 communities are home to over 3,000 companies that supply goods and services to BC’s mining industry, generating more than $1.35 billion in economic development and an additional two jobs for every direct job in the sector. The mining industry is a vital part of a healthy and robust provincial economy, supporting businesses and communities across the province. All communities are mining communities.
Come hear Michael Goehring talk about BC’s dynamic mining sector and how it shapes our provincial economy.
