We want to share stories, best practices, and experiences from across the sectors involved in building a low carbon and just economy for BC. Please help us find the right people and projects that capture the growing energy and excitement of green jobs development in our province.

Background:

GreenJobs BC works to bring BC’s environmental and labour sectors together to build a BC economy that lowers GHG emissions, creates good green jobs, and helps mitigate the results of climate change. Our events invite a broad base of stakeholders together to learn from inspiring local and regional case studies, hear and discuss the draft policy recommendations for the GreenJobs BC Green Jobs Plan with experts in each sector, and develop the relationships and momentum required to see a Green Jobs Plan adopted for our province.

Invite GreenJobsBC to your community:

Our staff and members are available to present to your organization or event (schedule permitting), to share successes and provide paths forward in building a green economy. We also hold events in communities where opportunities exist for a broader dialogue. Both presentations and events are undertaken on a cost-recovery basis. Please be in touch if you see potential opportunities for collaboration.
