This article reminds BC manufacturers that Massive Canada was the first and largest recipient of the new provincial grant program. Massive Canada is making significant progress with its demonstration project in Gibsons, BC. The Development Permit for Canada’s first mass timber parkade and a 126-unit rental housing apartment building is currently under review.

Massive Canada is set to benefit significantly from the recent provincial funding aimed at enhancing the value-added wood sector in British Columbia. The BC Manufacturing Jobs Fund (BCMJF), with an allocation of $180 million, is dedicated to supporting for-profit organizations in launching high-value industrial and manufacturing projects. This initiative is a catalyst for creating good jobs and growing local economies across B.C., particularly in the manufacturing sectors.

Key Highlights of the Funding:

Massive Canada’s participation in this initiative is a testament to its commitment to fostering innovation and strengthening local manufacturers. This move ensures long-term jobs and a sustainable future for the forestry sector and the communities it supports throughout the province.

Building a Stronger, Sustainable Economy:

The BCMJF is part of the province’s StrongerBC Economic Plan, which aims to build a strong and sustainable economy through clean and inclusive growth. Supporting B.C.’s manufacturing sectors, including the value-added forestry sector, is crucial in building a more innovative economy for people, businesses, and communities throughout B.C.

Massive Canada is excited to be at the forefront of this transformative journey, leveraging provincial support to enhance its manufacturing capabilities and contribute to a greener future.
