Honourable Christy Clark

Message from Honourable Christy Clark
Premier of British Columbia

Welcome to British Columbia.

I am looking forward to hosting premiers and delegations from across Canada in Vancouver for the 2011 Summer Meeting of the Council of the Federation.

British Columbia is uniquely situated on the west coast and has one of the most diverse populations in Canada. Its vast landscape, diverse economy, essential resources and important access to the Asia Pacific, make Vancouver an excellent place to discuss our economies, the importance of families and seizing opportunities in Asia.

The Council of the Federation is a key platform for premiers to come together to express individual and shared values and interests. We will discuss opportunities, challenges, best practices and cooperative intergovernmental relations to ensure we are building the best provinces and the strongest country for our families.

On behalf of the Government of British Columbia, I am honoured to welcome premiers, Council of the Federation delegates and your families to our province.
