Labour Force Trends

Posted in Labour Market Stats by lmi_thunderbay on January 7, 2011

From the latest edition of the Northwest Ontario Labour Market Monitor:

“Employment in the Northwest Ontario economic region decreased by 3,000 from November 2009 to November 2010. Job losses were in both full-time employment (-1,700) and part-time employment (-1,300). During this period, fewer people looked for work leading to a decline in the size of the labour force (-3,700). This, combined with a decrease in the number of unemployed people, caused the unemployment rate to drop by 0.4 percentage points from 6.5% in November 2009 to 6.1% in November 2010. Over the same period, the provincial unemployment rate declined from 8.4% to 7.9%.”
