Dec 17, 2019 -- Bill Collette


The Collective Perspective 2019-20 Report is HERE


This fall, we asked for your support to speak directly to government through your networks by participating in our annual Collective Perspective (CP) Survey, the largest annual economic snapshot of BC’s business climate. We received a record-breaking 1,555 responses and are pleased to present you with this year's



What did we learn this year from the provincial data?

  • Confidence in the BC economy has remained stagnant year over year, with even less confidence reported in the Canadian and Global economy.
  • Power to the women! You accounted for more than half of survey responses this year, with extra analysis on female entrepreneurs – a first for the survey.
  • The cost of doing business, labour shortages, and climate change remain key challenges (and some opportunities) for BC businesses.

We encourage you to use these findings to better understand the current economic outlook for BC and to align your business to thrive under our current & future conditions.
