Metro Vancouver’s economy continues to recover from the short-lived, COVID-19- induced recession of 2020. A rapid recovery began in June 2020 with the economy regaining approximately 250,000 jobs. Employment has now settled at around 1.5 million jobs in the region. Further job growth in Metro Vancouver will depend on the degree to which we can contain COVID-19’s fourth wave.
