The BC government has proclaimed the first ever “Supply Chain Week” in BC.

The week of September 12 to 16 is dedicated to honoring the work of supply chain professionals and to recognizing the resilience of the supply chain industry and its professionals in delivering essential goods and services across BC.

According to the BC institute of Supply Chain Canada, more thanĀ  200,000 supply chain professionals in the province manage the smooth flow of goods and services. They support over 500,000 businesses, and are recognized for leading innovation, global competitiveness, and driving economic growth in BC.

BC Supply Chain Week will share knowledge and recognize and honour the exceptional achievements of supply chain’s unsung heroes who faced unprecedented challenges over the past few years working to keep BC’s supply chains moving.

“We are proud to recognize our Supply Management profession in all its facets and celebrate those professionals who help make their organizations successful through their dedication, skills, and tenacity,” said Wende Kinch, president and CEO of Supply Chain Canada’s BC Institute.

Anyone in the industry is welcome to join a free virtual conferenceĀ being held from 12:00pm-1:00pm on Monday, September 12 and Wednesday, September 14, and from 11:30am to 12:30pm on Thursday, September 15 and Friday, September 16.
