BC Jobs Plan
The central focus of her government was job creation. The foundational document of this effort was the BC Jobs Plan - the result of a rigorous analysis of BC’s economic strengths and a broad consultation with the business community. It set out detailed goals for growth in 8 sectors with high potential (Forestry, Mining, Oil and Gas, International Education, Technology, Agriculture, Manufacturing, and Tourism). It also identified existing barriers to growth such as delays in permitting and red tape, with specific goals for their reduction.
The plan was underpinned by a sharp focus on disciplined fiscal management, historically large investments in infrastructure, and a single-minded effort to open new markets for BC goods in Asia.
