urge government and industry to work together on a strategy to
prevent jobs – and talent – from leaving BC
Vancouver, BC (April 26, 2012): If British Columbia’s creative industries are going to
reach their full job-creating potential in the competitive years ahead, they need the
creative equivalent and focus of the “Own the Podium” approach that earned Canada a

A report commissioned by a coalition of the province’s creative industries says a strategic
approach to the future is needed – one that includes moving this $4 billion sector from the
margins to the mainstream of economic and policy thinking, something that’s key to

job-creating potential. Without it, the province risks losing its best talent to places such as
Ontario and Quebec with their competitive tax credits, program funding and easier access
to investment capital. Read more
