Statistics Canada says BC added 4,600 jobs in the province last month, although Job Minister Ravi Kahlon says his ministry waiting to see what impact the extreme flooding may have on the economy.

Kahlon says the province has endured one challenge after another, including COVID-19, the summer's heat dome, wildfires and recent flooding and mudslides, but the resilience of people, businesses and communities has shone through at every turn.

The minister says in a statement BC's unemployment rate remains one of the lowest in the country, and it leads the nation with a job recovery rate of 102 per cent.

He says that means 55,000 more people have a job now than they did before the pandemic.
