The economic fall-out created by the COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented circumstances in Greater Victoria. In response to this, SIPP announced a multi-government, multi-stakeholder taskforce to convene a region-wide response. To support this monumental effort, we needed a responsive set of indicators to track monthly status and progress.
Below are the most up-to-date graphs for 11 of the 12 indicators we first introduced in May. We dropped the monthly Employment Insurance Beneficiaries indicator when we realized Statistics Canada stopped tracking it. We then added a new baseline indicator for “Business Counts (with employees)” this month.
The August Dashboard with full commentary is available in the box to the left.
