Indigenous Resources

Indigenous people in British Columbia (BC) play a vital and multifaceted role in the province's labor market, contributing significantly to its economic vibrancy.

Many Indigenous individuals actively participate in traditional industries such as forestry, fisheries, and agriculture, infusing these sectors with their unique knowledge of sustainable resource management; and a growing number of Indigenous workers are engaging in more diverse sectors, including technology, healthcare, and education, bringing their cultural perspectives and skills to foster greater innovation and inclusivity in those sectors. Indigenous entrepreneurs are making noteworthy strides, establishing businesses that not only create employment opportunities within Indigenous communities but also contribute enormously to the overall economic growth of BC.
