MNP is pleased to share The 2018 State of the North report for Central and Northern B.C. This is the second annual report produced in partnership between Northern Development Initiative Trust and MNP and is intended to provide community and business leaders with comprehensive sector-specific and regional data that will help shed light on opportunities and inform investment decisions.​​​​​

​​​​​Highlights in this must-read report include: An improvement in the oil and gas industry in 2017 and 2018 have resulted in LNG Canada making the decision to build an export facility in Kitimat. The LNG project has the potential to employ over 7,000 people and bring as much as $10 billion into the economy. The unemployment rate in Northern B.C has begun trending lower, and it is expected to decline even further with the construction of the LNG Canada export facility.
