Northern BC.s Growth Benefits Entire Province

Northern British Columbia is one of the fastest-growing economic regions in North America. Capital investments related to transportation, advanced manufacturing, forestry, mining and oil and gas, utilities and public infrastructure development are driving employment growth in communities throughout the north. It may surprise some British Columbians that economic activity across the northern region, specifically natural resource development, is generating approximately 70 per cent of the provincial government's annual revenue. In other words, seven out of every 10 dollars are generated in northern BC. As a result, continued economic growth in the north is crucial, not only for the health of the provincial economy, but also for the government's ability to provide public services, such as health care and education while maintaining a balanced budget.
Over the next three years, $34 billion in capital projects will be developed across the north. Many of these projects are already under construction in the forestry, mining, oil and gas, and transportation sectors. Over the next 10 years, the value of northern projects increases to $64 billion. A few examples of current and upcoming projects include:
. Mount Milligan copper/gold mine (Thompson Creek Metals), 155 km north of Prince George: $1.3 billion.
. Blackwater gold/silver mine (New Gold), 160 km southwest of Prince George: $1.8 billion.
. Red Chris copper/gold mine (Imperial Metals), 450 km north of Smith-ers: $443.6 million.
. KSM gold/copper mine (Seabridge Gold), 65 km northwest of Stewart: $3.5 billion.
. Kitimat Modernization Project (Rio Tinto Alcan), Kitimat: $3.3 billion.
. Northwest Transmission line (BC Hydro), Highway 37: $561 million.
. Site C Clean Energy project (BC Hydro), 7 km southwest of Fort St. John: $7.9 billion . Coastal GasLink pipeline (TransCanada/Shell): $4 billion.
Prince George is the largest community in northern B.C. and is the service and supply hub for most activities across the region. As such, emerging opportunities in the immediate region and throughout the north are driving population growth and economic growth in the city. Year-to-date, the labour force in Prince George has increased six per cent while employment in the city has increased by 7.1 per cent. In the third quarter of the year alone, employment in the city increased by 2,500. As an example, in the forestry, mining, construction and manufacturing sectors, employment doubled between January and September 2012. However, employment growth is not limited to traditional resource sectors, but across all sectors of Prince George's diverse economy. Some of the occupations in high demand include: licensed commercial truck drivers, engineers, technologists, nurses, physicians and health care aides, legal and accounting professionals, teachers, and university and college lecturers.
The increase in employment speaks to the continued growth of the population which, in turn, is driving increased housing units sales, housing starts and building permits (up five per cent, 17.6 per cent and 69 per cent, respectively, year-to date). Supporting development activities both throughout the region and within the municipality, the construction sector is one of the largest sectors. There are approximately 800 businesses engaged in the construction sector (13.5 per cent of total businesses), and nearly 6000 people employed with these businesses.
The economic opportunities in Prince George are enhanced by four-season recreation opportunities in the region's natural beauty, as well as by the full range of urban amenities offered.

Uta Marshall put forth great effort to sell our home in a timely matter.  We had some issues with selling the home but Uta helped us with her knowledge of real-estate and contractors.  She was able to feature our home in any different venues and medias to give our home as much exposure as possible.  Uta was able to communicate well with new buyers and their agents.   

Uta was able to find me a home very quickly, as the new owners want to move into my home within three weeks.  She helped me through the process, which turned about to be difficult with the timing of a long weekend being on the possession date.  She went above and beyond to work with the sellers of my new home and my financial institution for me to get into my new home asap.  I was very satisfied with Uta's professionalism and knowledge.  I am also extremely happy with my new home.  I wouldn't hesitate to refer her as a real-estate agent.
