Unemployment rate drops to 3.9 per cent and 22,300 jobs gained year-over-year

Today, job numbers released by Statistics Canada for June 2022 show Saskatchewan added 22,300 jobs, an increase of 3.9 per cent, compared to June 2021.  All of the growth was in full-time jobs.

Seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 3.9 per cent in June 2022, the second lowest among the provinces. It was down from 6.6 per cent a year ago, down from 4.8 per cent a month ago, and well below the national average of 4.9 per cent. 3.9 per cent represents the lowest unemployment rate in Saskatchewan since November 2014.

"Saskatchewan's economy continues on a strong and enviable growth path with a low unemployment rate and significant job gains," Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. "Our government will continue to support the job creators and workers to accelerate our economic growth in communities across the province."

Major year-over-year employment gains were reported for healthcare, and social assistance up 8,200 jobs, construction up 4,000 jobs, accommodation and food services, up 3,400 jobs. Over the same period, the private sector was up 19,000 jobs (+5.8 per cent), female employment increased by 11,300 jobs (+4.3 per cent), and youth (aged 15-24) employment was up by 6,000 jobs (+7.1 per cent).
