The Sumas Regional Consortium for High Tech (SRCTec) is a not-for-profit organization governed by a select group of technology executives that form a volunteer board of directors. SRCTec is a coalition of local government, industry partners and high education institutions interested in attracting tech based investment into the “Region” (including the District of Mission, City of Abbotsford and Chilliwack). As a consortium, SRCTec understands the necessary infrastructure and programs required within the Region, in order to create jobs, foster innovation and drive skilled training.
SRCTec is committed to the technology-led economic and educational development of the region. Recognized as a desired clean industry sector with tremendous growth potential, this concept is strongly supported by several local organizations including Community Futures Development Corporation, the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation, Stó:lō Nation, the University of the Fraser Valley, as well as key local Provincial MLA’s and Municipal Council representatives of the regional municipalities.
