MAP: Where B.C. incomes are growing fastest

Is your city hot—or not?

Accounting for 30 per cent of overall scores, income growth is by far the most heavily weighted indicator used in the Best Cities ranking. More so than average incomes, income growth reflects a city’s job market trajectory: what’s booming, and how much it’s booming. To capture some of that, we’ve created this heat map, which plots each of our ranked cities by five-year household income growth. Fort St. John, our No. 1 city, leads the pack at 18.20 per cent, while Terrace, No. 34, experienced the slowest income growth at 7.87 per cent.
