Lowest unemployment rate

Have you seen the numbers for January?  Our area has the lowest unemployment rate in Ontario.  An unemployment rate is defined most basically as the percentage of the total labour force that is unemployed but actively seeking employment and willing to work.

Here is a list.  Hastings County falls within Economic Region (ER) 3515 Kingston-Pembroke. In January, 2017 the unemployment rate here was 4%.  For Ontario overall it was 6%.  Toronto was 6.5%. 

While we won't rest on our laurels, I think that this is positive news for our area.
