A Bold Green Jobs Plan for BC
These documents resulted from a series of stakeholder forums, and a two-day conference, hosted by GreenJobs BC. The policy recommendations are a result of the discussions and on-line participation of more than 200 people from environmental organizations, labour unions, business, academia, and First Nations.
