Green and Local Food Jobs in the City of Vancouver 2015

Vancouver’s Greenest City Action Plan (GCAP) calls for doubling the number of green and local food jobs, as part of a vision for Vancouver to become the greenest city in the world by 2020. Starting in 2010, the Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC) has been evaluating the size and scale of the green economy and the potential that exists to leverage this sector for further economic development.
