City jobless rate rises slightly in May: StatsCan

By tbnewswatch.com

The jobless rate for the city rose last month, according to new numbers released by Statistics Canada.

The jobless rate for the city was 5.7 per cent, which is up from the 5.2 per cent Statistics Canada reported for April.

While the jobless rate may have rose, the city still boasts the second lowest rate compared to all other major Ontario urban areas.

Only Guelph had a lower jobless rate, which in May was 5.5 per cent.

Provincially, unemployment figures remain stated at 7.8 per cent.
