Manitoba boasts lowest unemployment rate in Canada
from Winnipeg Free Press
Manitoba's unemployment rate dipped to a country-leading 4.9 per cent last month, new Statistics Canada data shows. In its latest monthly Labour Force Survey report released recently, the federal agency said the province's jobless rate declined slightly — it was 5.0 per cent in July — even though the local economy posted a net gain of only 300 new jobs for the month. Part of the reason for that is that 300 workers also dropped out of the provincial labour force during the month. That left 683,200 people in the workforce, with 649,400 of them employed.
