British Columbia This Week

What to Expect

The transition from Premier Horgan to Premier Eby will continue this week, with speculation about Cabinet changes ramping up. You can also expect discussion around the decision to adjourn the Legislative Assembly an extra week and return only on November 21, giving the new Premier only four sitting days before the Christmas break.

The Week That Was

The passing of the Food Delivery Service Fee Act makes B.C. the first province in Canada to implement a cap on fees charged to customers by food-delivery services in an effort to provide more cost certainty to restaurant and bar owners.

The province has announced another intake period for the B.C. Air Access Program (BCAAP), which will be accepting applications for the 2022-23 fiscal year until December 22, 2022.

According to the October 2022 Labour Force Survey results, B.C. saw the addition of 10,000 more jobs in the month of October and a 4.2 per cent unemployment rate.

On Sunday, forest industry representatives, federal and provincial officials, and Indigenous leaders went to Japan to promote B.C.’s wood products industry with the aim of stimulating growth and economic recovery.
