Economy

Kitimat employers lead the northwest region in global manufacturing output, exports and energy-related activity. Perhaps the best kept secret is our productivity: over the last decade more than $15 billion in value-added manufacturing products has been sent to world markets by Kitimat-based companies. Local industry is responsible for up to 11% of Provincial Manufacturing GDP over that period. We believe growth prospects for The Port of Kitimat and Kitimat Valley will expand the economies of British Columbia and Canada in the coming years.
