Growth of provincial GDP is a key indicator of economic activity, but provincial GDP data is only available annually and with a considerable delay. That’s why we have developed the BCREA Nowcast – a tool for tracking monthly growth in the BC economy.
The BCREA Nowcast estimate of provincial economic growth (expressed as year-over-year growth in real GDP) in May is 2.5 per cent, a slight decline from 2.6 per cent in April.
