BC’s average weekly earnings rose just under 2% from November 2015 to 2016.
Stats Canada Analyst Dylan Saunders says even with the jump, the province still falls a little short of the national level.
“The average weekly earnings in British Columbia increased 1.5% to $924.00, the weekly earnings across Canada is $961.00 and that rose 0.8%. The province is increasing at a faster rate but is still below the national level.”
Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Manitoba, and New Brunswick also reported increases to their weekly earnings.
