Metro Vancouver Commerce
Pitt Meadows is one of ten member communities working together to attract investment to the region under a partnership called Metro Vancouver Commerce. Metro Vancouver Commerce is developing a multi-year strategy to leverage our joint assets to target specific countries and industries where investment in BC and with BC businesses makes sense.
LINX BC was founded in 1998 to create opportunities in selected communities by attracting call centres to the province of British Columbia. The partnership, through the hard work of its member economic development professionals, was extremely successful in facilitating call centre business. It brought in 10 call centers resulting in the creation of over 10,000 new jobs and a total annual income estimated at US$283 million. In addition, the annual indirect benefits of these call centers have been estimated to be over US$500 million.
Pitt Meadows along with 16 other member communities and the provincial government work together to attract investment in various sectors to BC. LINX BC works to attract companies involved in several other economic sectors including advanced manufacturing, agri-food production and tourism infrastructure development.
