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 updated the 2020 Prosperity Index to include new indicators that enable us to monitor economic recovery in Greater Victoria.
