Western Canada Growth Strategy: Working together for a better future Closed Economic development Sept 12, 2018 to Nov 16, 2018 2018-09-12 2018-11-16 Western Economic Diversification Canada The Western Canada Growth Strategy is a "made-in-western-Canada" plan that aims to position the West for success five years from now, 10 years from now, and beyond. This pan-western growth strategy will help set the foundation to ensure that the unique regional economies in western Canada continue to grow and flourish by: • identifying shared priorities to grow the economy • increasing collaboration with those who make a difference in our economy, such as business, industry, academia, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities and organizations, and different levels of government • engaging western Canadians to identify and drive economic growth opportunities The federal government is working with business, industry, academia, Indigenous communities and organizations, and different levels of government, to help develop a truly "Made-in-Western-Canada" growth strategy. This strategy not only reflects the unique regional advantages of each province, but also helps to stimulate economic growth. The proposed approach is to develop a strategy in three phases: • Phase One: public, Indigenous groups, and stakeholder engagement to shape and inform the development of the strategy; • Phase Two: strategy development to outline the economic pillars of the strategy; and, • Phase Three: implementation of collaborative initiatives within these economic growth pillars. The strategy will identify and connect shared priorities amongst multiple public and private organizations to stimulate economic growth, create jobs, drive innovation in the west, and serve as a framework for ongoing actions. Both the engagement and strategy development look at a whole–of-government (federal and provincial) approach to working with partners on economic growth opportunities in the west. The engagement process will explore topics such as: • Economic priorities in Western Canada, including challenges and opportunities • Increasing economic participation of Indigenous groups, women, and youth • Collaborative opportunities between all levels of government
