Prosperity Index

The South Island Prosperity Index provides a snapshot of the region’s current competitive position in relation to peer cities across Canada and around the globe. These benchmarks provide the context we need to set priorities and champion our strengths so that we can attract more investors, entrepreneurs and talent that can push us to the next level of performance.

As we emerge from the sharpest economic downturn since the Great Depression, our community will need accurate and timely information to monitor the speed of our economic recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic. We have supplemented the 2020 Prosperity Index with a monthly economic recovery dashboard. Scroll down to the link below to view it and sign-up for the monthly updates.

The 2020 Prosperity Index features comparative data on 33 indicators which provide a picture of economic health across three themes:
Economic Vibrancy, Equity & Inclusion, Environmental Prosperity.
