Services and Information Topics

Agriculture and seafood

The broad geography and climate of B.C. enables us to produce an impressive number of food products. British Columbians are proud of the over 200 agriculture commodities and 100 seafood species we harvest. In addition, B.C. has more than 1,500 businesses that produce foods and beverages ranging from breakfast cereal to wine to nutraceuticals.

Construction industry

The construction industry has a major impact on the growth and strength of the province. This industry has literally built B.C. – everything from homes and office buildings, to roads and bridges. Every project is a tribute to the skilled workers who built it.

Crown Land & Water

Crown land is land (or land covered by water like rivers or lakes) that is owned by the provincial government. This type of land is available to the public for many different purposes – from industry to recreation and research.


Forestry has played a huge role in B.C. for over 100 years. We do more than harvest timber: we seek to grow, sustain and benefit from our vast forests.

Electricity & Alternative Energy

The best energy sources are those that do not harm the environment. Learn about the types of energy we use in B.C. and what we do to conserve them.


B.C. Rangelands are on both public and private lands. Most of the province’s livestock grazing is done under trees, particularly in open forests, although grasslands are important sources of forage also. Rangelands have been managed under Crown Licenses for more than 100 years.
