Today, one in 15 Vancouverites works in the green economy – an increase from one in 20 just 4 years ago. Inside this preview you will find additional data and examples of green economy leaders.
VEC has focused on the green economy since 2010, with several programs and projects tailored to this sector:
- Green and Digital Demonstration Program;

- Digital and in-person programming of Thriving Vancouver
- Investment programs including Startup City, the Capital Mentorship Program and the Cleantech Investment Showcase
This preview of our report, ‘State of Vancouver’s Green Economy 2018’, updates you on our green economy data for two of the fastest growing green sectors – green buildings and cleantech.
We also track data and monitor trends, and the ‘State of Vancouver’s Green Economy 2018’ report provides you with the highlights.
