Province Adds 12K Jobs

WINNIPEG - Manitobans are getting back to work.

Stats-Can says there was an increase of 12,400 jobs in the province last month.

Premier Brian Pallister says we continue on a road-map to recovery.

“Our local and national economy is still progressing as we learn to live this virus,” Pallister said. “Thanks to the efforts of Manitobans, we continue to move forward with our balanced approach to restarting our economy and returning Manitobans back to work. I am pleased that over 60 per cent of Manitobans who lost employment due to COVID-19 are already back at work.”

Manitoba's unemployment rate for July was 8.2 percent, almost three points better than the national number of 10.9 percent.
