The Fraser Valley offers a number of opportunities in the cleantech sector.

Located immediately adjacent to Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley is British Columbia’s third-largest metropolitan region. In 2018, the Fraser Valley’s clean economy was valued at $1.17 billion, underpinned by an agriculture sector that is one of the most productive and diversified in Canada.

The region is open to solution providers and investors for project and investment opportunities across its clean economy sectors and in line with its Regional Growth Strategy.
