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

Our mission is to reignite the promise of Canada's economic future by leading respectful, inclusive and fact-based dialogue on natural resource development. Maybe you've heard about Resource Works' frequent media commentary, our podcasts and events or our advocacy initiatives. Or perhaps it's our daily sharing of information on social media that's caught your attention. Whatever the case, we invite you to read our articles, subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. Help us share the message that just as natural resources once built a strong BC and prosperous Canada, they can do so again in an environment defined by responsibility and reconciliation.

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.
