A List Of The Best And Worst Cities To Find A Job In Canada

We've got the lowest unemployement rate since 1976!

No matter where you live in Canada, finding a job is important. And recently, we've been having a bit of a hot streak when it comes to unemployment rates. That's right, currently, we are at a record low of 5.8% unemployment across the nation. Go Canada!

Canada's job market is soaring, especially seeing as in the past year, the country added 335,000 more full-time jobs. Employed Canadians are happy Canadians. We haven't had this many citizens employed since 1976!

Naturally, seeing as Canada is so vast and that the economics of different provinces vary so much, it definitely depends on where you live. Some places in Canada are having a really hard time keeping their people employed, so I bet you want to know if that's true for your town, eh?

For some, quitting a job and deciding to look for a new one probably wouldn't be a big deal. But for others, they need to seriously think about keeping their jobs if they've got one because if they leave, they may not find another.

So, here are the best (and worst) places in Canada to find a job:
