Released on November 2, 2018Statistics 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.

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