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, Cities of Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Maple Ridge, and the Township of Langley). 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.
