Located immediately adjacent to Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley is British Columbia’s third largest metropolitan region. In 2018, the Fraser Valley’s clean economy was valued at $1.17 billion, underpinned by an agriculture sector that is one of the most productive and diversified in Canada. Made up of six municipalities and eight electoral areas, the Fraser Valley is a growing hub for agrifood, trade, and cleantech manufacturing, with ties to the broader Cascadia Innovation Corridor. The region is open to solution providers and investors for project and investment opportunities across its clean economy sectors and in line with its Regional Growth Strategy.
This session will put a spotlight on the Fraser Valley’s clean economy needs and opportunities through a panel discussion with industry and community leaders. The coffee networking reception immediately following will allow GLOBE 2020 participants to connect with Fraser Valley companies, local economic development officers, city councillors, Stó:lō community leaders, and government officials.
