Enhancing BC’s Competitive Advantage in Knowledge and Skills

BC’s colleges offer individualized attention, flexible programming and innovative delivery models to achieve a world-class level of education. Our colleges teach essential and applied skills to help students evolve with an ever-changing workplace. And they regularly partner with small-to-medium sized businesses to design and execute applied research to commercialize new innovation and to improve productivity and performance.

To maintain a competitive advantage in an increasingly global economy continued strategic investment in BC’s colleges is essential. Programs need to be put in place now to: upgrade teaching equipment, build national and international business, construct new partnerships, secure federal matching grants and foster applied research and innovation. These programs will ultimately lead to increased productivity to meet BC’s economic demands during the coming decade and beyond.
