COVID-19 Recovery Dashboard - February, 2021

This month’s COVID-19 Recovery Dashboard shows that home sales once again set a record. While sales were strong across the province, the Fraser Valley, Thompson Okanagan, and Vancouver Island regions shattered previous sales records and pushed January sales to new heights. The rise in COVID-19 cases and enhanced health restrictions have slowed employment recovery in select sectors, particularly in hospitality. Meanwhile, the number of people employed in higher-wage positions continues to increase, encouraging housing demand. Manufacturing and trade are back to pre-pandemic levels, which bodes well for BC's economic growth going forward. For a more comprehensive overview of BC's economic recovery, click here.

About BCREA’s COVID-19 Recovery Dashboard
The BCREA Economics team has created the COVID-19 Recovery Dashboard to help REALTORS® monitor BC’s economic recovery. This dashboard focuses on the sectors and activities that have been most significantly impacted by the pandemic, including:
• Housing Markets
• Retail, Restaurant Reservations and Movement
• Jobs and Hours Worked
• Manufacturing and International Trade
• Business and Consumer Confidences
• Tourism
To monitor the province’s progress, we benchmark each indicator to February 2020, the month before the pandemic was declared. This dashboard is updated each month.


BCREA's updated COVID-19 Recovery Dashboard is available here.
