Manufacturing, Wholesale and Distribution

British Columbia’s manufacturing, wholesale and distribution industries have a major impact on all aspects of the provincial economy and also represent over 40% of all private sector research and development in the province.  Vancouver’s location as both a North American port city and an Asia-Pacific hub make it a unique setting for manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors to do business.  However, industry participants face major challenges including:

  • Patents and intellectual property;
  • EDC support for exports;
  • SR&ED;
  • Complex financing agreements;
  • Complex customer orders and contracts;
  • Foreign exchange risk management;
  • Global low cost sourcing; and
  • Challenges of global customer base.
