The provincial government says Saskatchewan has the lowest unemployment rate in the country.

In a release sent out Friday, the province says numbers released by Statistics Canada show strong year-over-year growth in Saskatchewan.

There have been 6,000 jobs added since September 2021, all of which are full-time jobs.

The province says Saskatchewan's unemployment rate fell to 4.1 per cent as of September 2022, which is the lowest among the provinces. The national average is 5.2 per cent.

"Saskatchewan's unemployment rate is the lowest in the nation, thanks to the hard work of Saskatchewan people and confidence shown by job-creators across the province," Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. "Our economy is creating opportunities for our residents and those moving to our province which is growth that works for everyone."

Saskatchewan's unemployment rate has dropped from 6.4 per cent in September 2021.

The province says the youth unemployment rate is also the lowest in Canada, at 7.6 per cent.

The year-over-year gains were driven by job growth in the healthcare and social assistance fields, along with steady growth in accommodation and food services, professional, scientific, and technical services.
