Government of B.C. releases Budget 2021

The Government of B.C. released Budget 2021, which includes substantial support for people and businesses impacted by the pandemic. The investment in B.C.’s future was also significant – from mitigating the impact of climate change and protecting our environment, to growing a clean economy, and making sure people have the skills needed for in-demand jobs. 

The budget follows the government’s recent announcement of the StrongerBC Future Leaders Program, which focuses on skills training and includes support to expand our Canadian Tech Talent Accelerator.
