  • Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba Have Lowest Unemployment Rates in Canada

    For those seeking jobs in Canada, the western Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba offer excellent opportunities. According to Statistics Canada (August 2013), these three provinces once again led Canada in having the lowest unemployment rates in the country as of July 2013. Scenic Saskatchewan boasted the lowest unemployment rate (4.0%) of Canada’s 11 provinces and three territories last month, while resource-rich Alberta also had a low unemployment rate of just 4.5% in July 2013 and the prairie province of Manitoba had an impressive unemployment rate of only 5.5 percent. These rates compare to the overall national unemployment rate for Canada of 7.2% in July 2013 (which was slightly lower than the U.S. unemployment rate of 7.4% for that same month). Therefore, if you are planning on Canadian immigration and want to find jobs in Canada, you may want to consider moving to the provinces of Saskatchewan, Alberta or Manitoba!

     

    Many foreign nationals who are issued a Permanent Resident (PR) Visa to Canada choose to settle in sunny Saskatchewan, which has the highest number of sunny days of any Canadian province or territory. Saskatchewan also has the fastest growing population in the country, due in large part to the availability of Canadian jobs in the province. Furthermore, Saskatchewan has a low cost of living which attracts thousands of people who immigrate to Canada to move to its affordable cities, such as Regina and Saskatoon.

     

    West of Saskatchewan is Alberta, which also has thousands of Canadian jobs available, with many of them related to the booming oil and gas industry. In addition to its strong economic performance, Alberta also has one of the top ten “Most Livable Cities in the World” - Calgary, which tied with the Australian city of Adelaide for 5th place in the 2012 Economist Intelligence Unit’s evaluation of 140 cities around the globe. Alberta also offers its residents easy access to some of the most spectacular scenery on Earth, such as found in nearby Banff and Jasper national parks.

     

    Another prime province for finding jobs in Canada is Manitoba, which is located immediately east of Saskatchewan. Manitoba is a great place for nature lovers, plus many people who immigrate to Canada have discovered that Winnipeg and Manitoba’s various small towns are nice places to raise families.

     

    Canada is currently experiencing a major shortage of skilled workers in various high-demand occupations. Although Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba have the lowest unemployment rates in the country, there are Canada job openings in all Canadian provinces and territories.
