Stronger Communities

Even before the pandemic, B.C. was making the largest investment in community infrastructure ever. Our recovery plan keeps building a cleaner stronger future with new infrastructure, essential services, and strong supports for local governments. We’re helping communities better respond to emergencies, study and work remotely, while protecting the environment.
