Saskatchewan’s year-over-year employment increased by 7,700 jobs from January 2018.  This marks the sixth consecutive month of strong job gains for the province.  The job gains were split between full-time and part-time increases, with full-time up 4,400 jobs and part-time up 3,200 jobs. Jobs in the private sector were up 16,200.

“Saskatchewan has seen strong job growth for six consecutive months now,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “This is an encouraging trend to see in spite of the economic headwinds we have been faced with in recent months.  We will continue to work hard and stand up for our province to ensure this positive economic trend continues.”
