The Major Investments Office (MIO) engages with proponents that seek to advance multimillion dollar investments in British Columbia. The branch has two core functions: investment opportunity assessment and major investment advisory.

Investment opportunity assessment requires building deep relationships with potential investors seeking financial and/or non-financial assistance from the province. Activities include preliminary and detailed due diligence reviews, business case and financial analysis, provincial value proposition determination, Cabinet and/or Treasury Board approval processes and negotiating agreements between the province and companies to facilitate a specific investment. This also includes providing overarching investment policy advice to political and executive decision-makers.

Major investment advisory involves engaging with senior and executive business decision-makers and cross-ministry stakeholders to facilitate investment opportunities. This often consists of guiding private sector decision-makers on government processes, identifying issues, facilitating engagement with other levels of government as well as indigenous communities and working with public service colleagues to find solutions to a host of issues that will lead to positive investment decisions.

The Senior Policy Analyst position performs detailed financial due diligence on major investments and works closely with Treasury Board(TB) Staff to prepare TB submissions and other required documents to seek TB approval. The position works closely with other stakeholders (e.g. Federal Government, and private investors) to perform joint evaluation of investments.

The position may also be called upon to lead research, analysis on specific investment projects and initiatives and assists the Project Director with a portfolio of multiple industry investment facilitation projects, from initiation to completion. This includes engagement with senior public and private sector executives as well as senior staff from across ministries. The position develops, implements, and evaluates long-term investment policy frameworks and assesses specific major investment opportunities for ministerial and/or Cabinet decision.

The BC Public Service is committed to creating a diverse workplace to represent the population we serve and to better meet the needs of our citizens. Consider joining our team and being part of an innovative, inclusive and rewarding workplace.
