May 25, 2023—Vancouver—The expansion of lululemon’s global headquarters in its hometown of Vancouver promises to significantly boost British Columbia’s prosperity.
lululemon has committed to grow in Vancouver over the next five years and invest in creating over 2,600 local jobs, which has already begun to stimulate British Columbia’s workforce and economy.
The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, and the Honourable Anne Kang, British Columbia’s Minister of Municipal Affairs, today welcomed the continued growth of the iconic Canadian company’s global headquarters in Vancouver.
With its British Columbia origins, lululemon has employed and continues to employ thousands of Canadians, while bringing people with unique skill sets from abroad to the province, fuelling Canada’s innovation engine. This expansion project, and the growth of the company, will benefit from the collaboration of the federal and provincial governments after being recognized as a significant investment project under the Canada-British Columbia Immigration Agreement. This recognition allows the company to further welcome international talent in a variety of high-skilled occupations.
lululemon’s expansion, including the growth of its store support centres and global training centres, will create significant employment growth and knowledge transfer over the next several years, fast-tracking the benefits the project will have for British Columbia and the rest of Canada.
