According to a release, the unemployment rate in Saskatchewan for July 2022 decreased from 7.1 per cent in July 2021 and was well below the national average of 4.9 per cent.
StatCan said Saskatchewan added 24,400 jobs in July, an increase of 4.4 per cent compared to July 2021, the third highest increase among the provinces. All of the growth was in full-time jobs.
“Saskatchewan continues to be a national leader, having one of the lowest unemployment rates and some of the highest job growth in the country,” stated Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison. “Low unemployment rates, combined with the strong job creation numbers we have seen over the last year, will lead to further economic growth and prosperity that will benefit all residents of our province.”
