Best Cities for Work in 2016

Back by popular demand, we survey the province and rank 36 B.C. communities based on their job markets. Who’s up? Who’s down? And why?

When we published the Best Cities for Work in B.C. feature last January, we didn’t know quite what to expect. Yes, we figured readers would have an interest in which B.C. cities had a hot job market or not—communities are competitive, after all, and we all like to know how we rank compared to our neighbours. But the extent of interest was rather overwhelming. Issues of the magazine flew off newsstands during one of the media industry’s slowest months. Radio and TV stations from across the province wanted to talk to us about the winners, losers and reasons why—and online, results were dissected and shared across North America. By the end of 2015, Best Cities for Work was by far our most read story of the year.

So here we are again for an encore.
