British Columbia is the home of the multi-billion-dollar non-combat fleet renewal program under Canada’s National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS) which creates significant new opportunities for British Columbia companies in the marine manufacturing and maintenance sector.

With state-of-the-art deep sea ports that are ice-free year-round, and located two shipping days closer to Asia than any other West Coast market, BC’s transportation sector has strong advantages. In this regard, BC has committed to fostering green transportation research and development and building competitive supply chains.

Particularly, British Columbia plans significant investment in private and public sector transportation improvements.

Companies located here will enjoy excellent opportunities for growth.
