Meet Resource Works

We bring people together for a respectful, fact-based dialogue on responsible resource development in British Columbia.

What we've been up to

We often hear that balancing the environment and the economy is something everybody agrees on. Achieving that in practice isn't easy. At Resource Works, we're showing that it's possible. Maybe you've heard about our frequent media commenting, our new podcasts, or our Task Force for Real Jobs, Real Recovery. Or perhaps it's our daily sharing of information on social media that's caught your attention.

We have a problem...

British Columbia is polarized

  • Resource development and jobs
  • Protecting our environment

Can we have both?

Natural resources are tied to our past - and essential to our future. Resource jobs employ hundreds of thousands of people and drive economic growth. They fund our government programs and support our way of life.

In fact, without natural resources, we'd all be naked.

So why is it so difficult for us to talk about responsible resource development?

It's time for a real conversation.
