Another day well spent at the Richmond Oval – STRIVE Recruitment Inc is extremely happy to have participated in The Children’s Wish Foundation annual event: Heroes Challenge.

Ultimately, fulfilling Saiyaan’s wish was definitely one of our proudest moments. Saiyaan got to experience the Disney Alaskan Cruise with his family and thoroughly enjoyed his trip!

Canada’s lowest unemployment rate on record with BC performing best

Statistics Canada released a historical point of goods news today (January 5): the country is experiencing its lowest rate of unemployment for as long as comparable records exist.

“The unemployment rate continued on a downward trend, decreasing by 0.2 percentage points to 5.7%, the lowest since comparable data became available in January 1976,” reads a Statistic Canada media release.

For B.C., the percentage is even lower.

“In the 12 months to December, the unemployment rate in British Columbia fell by 1.2 percentage points to 4.6%, the lowest among all provinces,” the release continues.

“In 2017, British Columbia closed out the year with an employment growth rate of 3.4%. The gains in 2017 were almost all in full-time work, and were mainly in health care and social assistance; construction; and finance, insurance, real estate, rental and leasing.”

Things also continue to begin to look better in neighbouring Alberta, where the province’s oil-based economy has been slow to recover since fracking and horizontal-drilling technologies took off across the United States.

“The unemployment rate fell from 8.5% at the end of 2016 to 6.9% at the end of 2017,” the release states.

“Following a slide in employment from the autumn of 2015 to the summer of 2016, the labour market in Alberta added workers in 2017, with a growth rate of 2.4% ,” it continues. “The employment gains were attributable to manufacturing; wholesale and retail trade; natural resources; finance, insurance, real estate, rental and leasing; and transportation and warehousing. The unemployment rate fell from 8.5% at the end of 2016 to 6.9% at the end of 2017.”
