Manufacturing matters

Manufacturing is a significant contributor to BC’s economy. Manufacturing is BC’s third largest source of employment, directly providing about 180,000 jobs and indirectly supporting hundreds of thousands of indirect jobs. For every $1 dollar generated by a manufacturer another $3.50 in economic activity results in local BC communities.

More than 30% of all business taxes flowing to government come from manufacturing.

In 2012, the sector was the fourth largest contributor to provincial GDP at 7.2%. Contrary to popular belief, manufacturing is the primary source of exports from BC, NOT natural resources, comprising almost 65% of shipments.

Manufacturing Month is an opportunity for manufacturers, educators and governments to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help build stronger communities and allow future generations to thrive in high-paying skilled jobs.
