TRU has experts who can discuss results of the June Labour Force Survey that showed employment grew by 42,100 jobs in BC, which means 17,000 more British Columbians are now working than in February 2020, when the pandemic hit. BC’s unemployment rate is one of the lowest in the country at 6.6 percent, well below the national average of 7.8 percent.

Dr. Meng Sun is an assistant teaching professor in TRU’s School of Business and Economics. He studies the causes and consequences of labour productivity.
