What are some jobs in British Columbia?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Jobs in British Columbia are very diverse and offer a wide range of opportunities.

Since most of the population is at the Lower Mainland region, you will discover any job type imaginable from management, hospitality, research, teaching, trades and so on. Internet technology is one example of a higher growth industry for Western BC. Also, the lower mainland has very advanced educational institutions and support for innovative business developments, so you will find lots of new types of job opportunities. There are several sites you can explore to discover jobs around the lower mainland. You are best to narrow your interests first in your search otherwise there would be too many to search through.

In the interior such as the Kootenay region, you can check out their web site and learn more in the social network. The interior has a range of opportunities, however, some of the communities are supported more by a few industries that may focus on areas such as raw resource supply and development such as forestry, mining or service areas such as tourism. This is changing though! Technology has made its way into almost all interior regions and entrepreneurs are creating very interesting services and products that are creating very interesting job opportunities.

How old do you have to drink alcohol in British Columbia?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The drinking age depends upon where in the world the drinking is being done. There's no such thing as a worldwide, legal drinking age. In fact, in some countries, there's never such a legal age, because alcoholic beverages aren't supposed to be tolerated. But in the way of an example, the drinking age tends to be 18 in the Latin American countries. Even there, though, there are exceptions. In the Dominican Republic and Haiti, the age is lower, at 16. In Nicaragua and Paraguay, the age is higher, at 19 and 20, respectively.
