2016 Local Economic Development Survey

Survey Findings

The Government of B.C. partnered with the BC Economic Development Association (BCEDA) and Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) to ask local economic development stakeholders from across the province how their communities view local economic development.

Over 400 responses from economic development professionals, elected officials, local government staff, and other stakeholders were received, with representation from across the province. The results provide insight into the opportunities, challenges and unique activities taking place across the province at a local level.
