Stronger Communities

Even before the pandemic, B.C. was making the largest investment in community infrastructure ever. Our recovery plan keeps building up B.C.’s resilience in a post-pandemic world with continued record investments into new infrastructure, essential services, and strong supports for local governments. We’re helping people and communities better respond to emergencies, study and work remotely, while protecting the environment.
