B-C has received a Triple-A credit rating for the 12th year in a row from Moody’s Investors Service. Finance Minister Michael de Jong says attributes the rating to the province’s prudent fiscal planning and economic growth. He says diversifying the economy while attracting investment has put the province on solid economic footing to weather any downturns that may happen beyond our borders. The Triple-A stable rating is the highest possible, and the investors service applauded the province in saying B.C. was faster than other provinces to return to balanced budgets following the 2009 recession.
