Monthly labour market report

The employment data for July has been published by Statistics Canada. New Brunswick dropped 3,200 jobs in July compared to June. On the whole, year over year, the total employed population growth in New Brunswick is similar to the national average – which is better than 90% of the last 20 years. That’s a good thing, to be sure.

But if you look at a two, three, four, five, etc. year trend, we are well below the national job creation levels.

So, let’s cross our fingers.
