Job Growth Remains Strong In Saskatchewan

Released on October 11, 2019

Saskatchewan saw its 14th consecutive month of job growth in September, with year-over-year employment rising by 13,300 jobs, an increase of 2.3 per cent.

Female employment increased by 4,200 (+1.6 per cent) and off-reserve Aboriginal employment increased by 4,900 (+10.7 per cent).  Month-to-month employment also rose by 600 jobs from August 2019.

The unemployment rate was 5.3 per cent in September (seasonally adjusted), down from 6.3 per cent a year ago.  Saskatchewan had the fourth lowest unemployment rate in the country (tied with Ontario), below the national average of 5.5 per cent.

“Saskatchewan experienced record highs in terms of employment in the month of September, in spite of external factors contributing to ongoing economic uncertainties,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Our government will continue working hard to ensure Saskatchewan people have the ability to work and contribute to the growth of our great province.”

Other September highlights include:

  • An all-time high was recorded for the working-age population (891,200), and a record high for the month of September for labour force (588,600);
  • Major year-over-year gains were reported for educational services up 3,900 jobs, manufacturing up 3,600 jobs and other services up 3,200 jobs; and
