SINCE THE FIRST ARRIVAL of Canadian Pacific and Great Northern trains, Metro Vancouver has been built up by strategic transportation investment. Our valuable location on the Pacific and the Fraser is supported by great sea and air ports that rely on efficient movement of goods and people to do their work.
Better transportation is needed by all economic sectors and every type of worker. And the good news is these are green jobs. Transit occupies a sweet spot for creating good jobs that reduce our environmental footprint. They are a classic green jobs generator.
