City’s jobless rate lowest in Ontario

By tbnewswatch.com

THUNDER BAY -- This area boasts the lowest unemployment rate of all major Ontario urban areas.

This news comes after Statistics Canada released new employment numbers for July. The new report shows that this area featured a five per cent unemployment rate for the month of June.

That’s down from June’s 5.2 per cent, and is well below the provincial average of 7.4 per cent.

Meanwhile, the national unemployment rate in July sat at seven per cent, with only Regina and Saskatoon showing lower rates than Thunder Bay.
