More and more people are working in northwest Alberta, as the region saw another 0.1 per cent drop in the Athabasca – Grande Prairie unemployment rate in February.
The rate has dropped to 3.7 per cent in from 3.8 per cent in January.
That’s also where it stood a year ago.
More people working in manufacturing and accommodation services helped drop Alberta’s unemployment rate by point-two per cent over last year.
The rate was 4.3 per cent in February.
However, Canada-wide, seven-thousand jobs were lost last month, keeping the unemployment rate at seven per cent.
