The BC Alliance for Manufacturing is a coalition of like-minded manufacturing industry associations with a common vision to promote a world-class manufacturing sector in British Columbia. Those with an interest in ensuring a strong manufacturing sector include businesses in the design, supply, material handling, fabrication and logistics areas; people-based organizations that train and develop skilled workers for high-paying jobs; and community-focused chambers of commerce and boards of trade that recognize the significant economic contribution to their cities derived from manufacturing, directly and indirectly.
The Alliance coordinates multiple stakeholders to act together on priority issues impacting the province’s manufacturers. The goal is to ensure all British Columbians continue to benefit from the economic growth, high-value outputs and high-paying jobs found across all types of manufacturing in the province.
The Alliance provides a common platform for its members to improve economies of scale and joint-efforts in project management, training, capacity building, corporate services support, and government / public relations.
