Two years after the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, the Metro Vancouver Commerce (MVC) 2010 Business Program is reporting continued success. PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) was commissioned to produce a report that provides an update on last February’s one-year-out published figures. The latest report now pegs direct foreign investment resulting from the MVC Program at $194M, generating $350M in economic impact and benefits, and $179M in GDP growth. The Program will result in nearly 3,000 new jobs throughout Metro Vancouver.
These statistics build on the $300M in economic impact and benefits and the 2,500 jobs reported in 2011, one year after The Games took place, demonstrating that the Metro Vancouver Commerce 2010 Business Program successfully leveraged the economic opportunity of the 2010 Olympics.
