According to Canada’s Labour Force Survey, unemployment in Canada is on the decline. The rate of unemployment fell from 7.4 to 7.2, two percent lower than the United States. Roughly 25,000 new full time positions were made available in manufacturing, construction, transportation, warehousing, and the retail industries. This number surpassed initial estimates of job openings to be created by about 10,000 positions.
Saskatchewan in particular experienced a boom in job availability, with just over 12,000 postings for the last month, up 40% from last year. Currently, the province of Saskatchewan has the lowest unemployment rate in Canada at 5.2 as of July 2011. Trades and the primary sector and involving natural and applied sciences showed much growth in the past year. Quebec has also experienced a decrease in its unemployment rate.
These new numbers are very good for those planning to immigrate to Canada. Job opportunities are increasing, and with them, the likelihood of securing a stable job offer becomes greater.
