Clark promotes more support for rural communities
Premier Christy Clark says the BC Jobs Plan has been a success, but more work needs to be done – especially to support rural areas.
Clark, along with Minister of Jobs Shirley Bond, provided a five-year update on the plan.
Clark says while the province has achieved its goal of becoming number one in job creation in Canada, it did miss 4 of the 19 goals set out in the first jobs plan because of changes in global markets.
Clark says the government is also working on a strategy to support infrastructure development in rural communities to create jobs and help diversify rural economies.
