Bruce Ralston, Minister of Jobs, Trade and Technology

Bruce Ralston, Minister of Jobs, Trade and Technology has said that “The Labour Force Survey results show that our economy is working for people. For the sixth month in a row, B.C. leads Canada in year-over-year wage growth, showing that people are finally starting to see the benefits of our strong economy. We have the lowest unemployment rate in Canada at 5%, and the lowest youth unemployment rate at 9.4%.

“All around B.C., from the North Coast to the Kootenays, employment is up as people are finding jobs. With over 7,000 more full-time jobs than this time last year, more and more people are finding stable work instead of trying to balance part-time jobs to make ends meet.
