In an effort to bring British Columbia’s economic opportunities forward and re-think how the province considers important decisions about the future, the Business Council of British Columbia and the B.C. Chamber of Commerce coordinated a year-long process over 2012-2013 called the B.C. Agenda for Shared Prosperity. This initiative generated new ideas for policies and processes that seek to combine the ingredients needed to drive a future of shared prosperity for the province, and its people.
The initiative was informed by an Advisory Council comprised of passionate civic-minded British Columbians and included a series of regional policy workshops in the Fall of 2012 and a full day conference in Vancouver in April 2013.
