Just so you know:

BC Business Magazine - - Best cities for work in B.C. -

• Our rank­ing only in­cludes cities with more than 10,000 per­ma­nent res­i­dents.

• Bed­room com­mu­ni­ties may be great places to live, but they have rel­a­tively small job mar­kets. For that rea­son, we ex­cluded cities like Port Moody, White Rock and West Van­cou­ver.

• For Lan­g­ley and North Van­cou­ver, we com­bined the num­bers for city/town and district gov­ern­ments.

• We work with re­search part­ner En­vi­ron­ics An­a­lyt­ics be­cause we think it has the best avail­able data, but there are lim­its. For ex­am­ple, to pro­duce its in­come num­bers, En­vi­ron­ics An­a­lyt­ics uses Sta­tis­tics Canada and Canada Rev­enue Agency data pro­jected for­ward to 2017. The un­em­ploy­ment rates shown in the rank­ing are from Statscan's Septem­ber 2017 Labour Force Sur­vey, a three­month mov­ing av­er­age that only cal­cu­lates num­bers for the prov­ince's seven eco­nomic re­gions and won't re­flect any changes for the rest of the year.
