NB employment growth second slowest in Canada over past year

From the latest labour force survey out today.  It’s the same story.  The Canadian economy churns out 109,000 new jobs in the past month and NB churns out 800 of them.  These are the year over year employment growth numbers for the provinces.   New Brunswick is going to need a private sector growth strategy. The public spending propped up the numbers over the past couple of years but now that we are hopefully coming out of the recession, we will need more private sector investment and job creation.
