Some highlights from today's Labour Force Survey.
23, 700 jobs lost this month in Alberta
28,000 full time lost with a gain of 4,200 part time jobs
Unemployment rose 1.0% this month and 1.8% over last year.
Last month the Edmonton Real Estate Blog linked to a post from Chris Davies highlighting that only 200 jobs were lost in January in Alberta, which showed a contrast between Alberta and eastern Canada.
However now looking back over three months it appears that the January report did not indicate any sort of trend as the month previous and this month's numbers show a more rapidly deteriorating job market.
