Natural Resources

With B.C.'s global competitive advantage strongly linked to resources, the province's economic future hinges on British Columbians' support for B.C.'s resource industries and projects.

B.C. is, and will remain for the foreseeable future, a resource economy.

The ability to extract and export B.C.’s abundant natural resources will be a defining characteristic of communities’ economic prosperity.

B.C.’s ability to realize the economic rewards from our resource sector is challenged on a number of fronts, including regulatory and approval delays and opposition from First Nations and environmental groups.

The BC Chamber's goal is to build a culture where the public is informed about the importance of B.C.'s resource sector to the entire province's economic and community wellbeing.

Further to this, the Chamber's goal is to ensure that approval and regulatory processes are streamlined and expedited where possible.
