The Industry

Vancouver is Canada’s largest port city. The Port of Vancouver does more than $75 billion in trade with over 130 different economies annually (Vancouver Port Authority, 2009). Vancouver’s port is also the fourth largest port and most diversified port in North America since 2010.  Managers with expertise in supply chain and customer relations management are increasingly in demand in the international trade industry (Statistics Canada, 2011). With a highly diverse natural environment, population and economic base, British Columbia offers numerous advantages and opportunities for business across a broad range of world class industry sectors.
