Kelowna Jobless Rate Down

Busy summer tourism season has helped to drive the jobless rates down to all time lows. With workers retiring, tourists arriving filling up hotels and restaurants businesses felt more confident. All these factors combined helped to push the region's unemployment rates to all time lows. The new Statistics Canada figures showed Kelowna's jobless rate at a rock bottom 4.1 percent in August the lowest in the country.

Five percent is considered by many to be full employment, those who remain without jobs in such buoyant times are either going to find work very soon or have barriers to finding work,  such as no skills, mental or physical disabilities or difficult home and/or personal situations. All good news for Kelowna.
