B.C. Launches Mass Timber Action Plan and Funds Granville Street Project

Today, British Columbia launched the Mass Timber Action Plan and announced funding for four new mass-timber housing and infrastructure projects as a key step in the StrongerBC Economic Plan.

Among those is Intelligent City’s Granville Street project in Downtown, Vancouver! We are proud to be part of this cohort of supported projects and that we were able to provide material for the Action Plan itself.

“Mass timber is a triple-word score. It allows us to reduce our carbon footprint from construction, it adds value to our forestry sector, and it provides new opportunities for jobs, growth and innovation in every corner of the province,” said Ravi Kahlon, Minister of Jobs, Economic Recovery and Innovation. “Positioning B.C. to be a global leader in mass-timber research, engineering innovation and production is a key action in the StrongerBC Economic Plan.”

The Mass Timber Action Plan shows that B.C. could have as many as 10 new mass-timber manufacturers by 2035. In addition, boosting the sector’s skills training through trades programs at post-secondary institutions will help fill an anticipated 4,400 additional job openings in manufacturing, construction and design.
