Economic development is a high priority for City Council and the Port Moody community. We are actively working to increase local employment, with a particular focus on knowledge-based employment that aligns with the skills and education of Port Moody residents. We’ll achieve this goal by meeting the following five objectives:

  1. increase total employment floor space development across the community
  2. increase upper-floor employment space in the Moody Centre neighbourhood and other potential office locations
  3. increase the number of operating businesses in the community
  4. improve the balance between Port Moody-based jobs and residents
  5. improve the alignment between Port Moody workforce and Port Moody jobs
