EmployerOne Survey Observations 2017

By reviewing general conditions of the local labour market, we set the stage for the survey responses. According to Statistics Canada’s Labour Force Survey, between 2015 and 2016, the Four County labour market experienced some mixed changes: the number of people in the labour force decreased by 900; the number of people employed increased by 500; and the number of people unemployed decreased by 1,400. In addition, the 2016 unemployment rate was 4.8 percent in the Four County area and 6.5 percent in Ontario, pointing to a tight supply of labour for the region.
