Rural Economic Development

The Government of British Columbia is committed to working with our rural communities to strengthen their resilience, create jobs and build unmatched economic opportunities while enriching the unique lifestyle advantages that rural B.C. has to offer.

Rural communities are the backbone of British Columbia’s economy and way of life. At a time when B.C. is leading Canada in both economic growth and job creation, the B.C. government is exploring new ways to ensure all British Columbians share in this growth and prosperity regardless of where they live in the province.
