Affordability Dashboard - Vancouver

The VEC, under its Economic Transformation Lab and in partnership with SFU and MITACS, seeks to research, design, and publish an affordability dashboard that consolidates all important metrics/statistics on affordability, relevant to Vancouver businesses and talent. The Dashboard will not only focus on affordability of office, retail, and industrial space, as well as other pertinent business operation affordability metrics, but will also contain affordability metrics that inform businesses of the cost of living for their talent. The dashboard will also include benchmarking against other ?peer? cities; the comparison cities will be identified through similarities in city population, brand, GDP, etc. The intent behind this dashboard is to make all of the metrics available in one place to help inform businesses and talent of current affordability conditions.
