It would appear Friday morning’s jobs report is more evidence the Canadian economy continues to gain steam.
According to Statistics Canda, the national unemployment rate fell two-tenths of a point to 6.6-percent last month — its lowest level in more than two years.
The economy added 15-thousand, 300 jobs overall.
8-thousand jobs were created in Saskatchewan in February. That is up 1.4-percent — the highest growth rate in the country.
Saskatchewan’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.0 per cent in February, the third-lowest among the provinces.
Economy Minister Jeremy Harrison says while the strong employment numbers are very encouraging, Saskatchewan is still facing a challenging fiscal situation due to resource revenues being down well over a billion dollars.
