Strongest Job Growth In Saskatchewan In Four Years

Released on November 2, 2018

Statistics Canada reported today that in October Saskatchewan’s year-over-year employment increased by 9,400 jobs.  This is the largest gain in jobs for the province since October 2014.

Full-time employment increased by 5,700 jobs and part-time employment increased by 3,700 jobs compared to a year ago.  On a monthly basis, seasonally adjusted employment increased by 2,500 jobs from September 2018.

“These job numbers are unequivocally positive news for our provincial economy,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Saskatchewan job creators are showing confidence in our province in spite of the headwinds our economy faces in the areas of transportation, trade and the threat of a federally imposed carbon tax.  We will continue to promote our province and the goods produced and manufactured by our residents to new and existing trade markets in order to create jobs and opportunity for Saskatchewan people right here at home.”

October’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.2 per cent, down from 6.4 per cent in September.

Other October highlights include:

  • Major year-over-year gains were reported for educational services up 5,900 jobs; health care and social assistance up 4,700 jobs; agriculture up 3,000 jobs.
  • Female employment up 5,400 jobs (+2.1 per cent) and male employment up 3,900 jobs (+1.3 per cent).
  • Solid job growth in the private sector with 11,800 more jobs from a year ago (+3.6 per cent).
