Ontario’s economy saw an increase in job creation in November as the government continues to focus on improving the province’s investment climate, attracting new businesses and providing more opportunities for employment.
The province gained 13,800 net jobs last month, contributing to an overall increase of 474,700 jobs since June 2009. Ontario’s youth (ages 15-24) employment increased by 4,100 net jobs in November. The youth unemployment rate fell by 0.7 percentage points to 15.3 per cent. Manufacturing sector employment increased by 12,400 in November.
Ontario has recovered all the jobs lost during the recession and continues to outpace the United States and the Great Lakes States in job creation since June 2009.
