Over 9,000 Jobs Created in February

Mar 12, 2012

(News Release) VICTORIA — British Columbia continues to be a beacon of economic growth with over 9,000 jobs added to the economy last month.

In the past year, 39,900 net new jobs have been added to the economy.

The most recent Statistics Canada’s monthly report, released last week, notes that British Columbia held steady with a 6.9 per-cent unemployment rate, down from 8.7 per cent at this time last year. This is Canada’s best percentage point decrease during that time period.

“This is great news for British Columbia," says Pat Bell, Minister of Jobs, Tourism, and Innovation Pat Bell.

"Each and every new job is a new opportunity for an entire family. Our government remains committed to foster economic growth, job creation and keeping spending and taxes down. These numbers also reveal that the vast majority of these new jobs added to the economy are full time. With the BC Jobs Plan, we are delivering results and keeping our economy strong.”
Canada Starts Here: The BC Jobs Plan builds on government’s solid foundation of prudent fiscal management to attract investment and open new markets for B.C. products and services, and to create jobs for British Columbians. As part of the plan, B.C. is making smart investments in infrastructure and is working hard to ensure British Columbians have the right skills for tomorrow.
