On September 19, 2019, the Business Council was pleased to launch the Inaugural B.C. Prosperity Index.
The B.C. Prosperity Index was presented by Greg D'Avignon, President & CEO, Business Council of B.C., Sue Paish, CEO, Canada's Digital Technology Supercluster, and Ken Peacock, Chief Economist & Vice President, Business Council of B.C.
The purpose of the B.C. Prosperity Index is to examine and track British Columbia’s performance on key measures of business, economic, social and community well-being, compared to the rest of Canada and several other advanced economy jurisdictions. This information will make it possible to measure whether and to what extent living standards in the province are getting better over time. It will also enable us to gain insights from top performing jurisdictions on what we can do to increase overall well-being.
Thank you to the generous support of our Sposnors: Air Canada, Encana, PETRONAS Canada, Port of Vancouver, TD Bank, and Waste Connections of Canada.
