Wasting B.C.'s Skilled Immigrant Workers

Canada is in desperate need of more highly skilled, educated immigrants. At least that’s what we’re told by studies such as the World Economic Forum’s 2011 Global Talent Risk Report. Despite current concerns about persistently high unemployment, the study estimates...

Rob Pease, Sabina Gold & Silver Corp.

Is Small Business Bad for B.C.?

This is what entrepreneurial success is supposed to look like. The decor is all blues, blacks and matte metals. The cubicles are all flat screens and headsets. The offices are all sports equipment and management books. The lobby’s triumphant corporate...

Mibroc Group of Companies

Congratulations to Mibroc, #19 in 2011's Most Innovative Companies in B.C. With building and selling homes arguably B.C.’s favourite business, pastime and obsession, it’s gratifying to include a medium-sized developer on this year’s list, even if it’s for its marketing, of all things.

Annex Consulting Group Inc.

Congratulations to Annex Consulting Group, #14 in 2011's Most Innovative Companies in B.C.

Zymeworks Inc.

Congratulations to Zymeworks, #12 in 2011's Most Innovative Companies in B.C. There are dozens of biotech companies in B.C. working feverishly to create the next groundbreaking new medicine, but it takes years to find out whether they’ll ever be a success.

Vision Critical Communications Inc.

The era of market researchers trying to gather a couple hundred survey responses using the telephone is, for the most part, dead, gone and unmourned. The world has moved on, and a Vancouver company has helped lead the way. Vision...

Redlen Technologies Inc.

(More: 2011 BCBusiness Guide to Innovation) Some B.C. companies are working on products so advanced they’re difficult to understand until they’re put to use. That’s why when the Canadian military used 25 hand-held devices for sniffing out radioactive threats during the...
