The ratio in British Columbia declined from 5.1 to 4.3 in the 12 months to June. The ratio declined as a result of fewer people being unemployed in the province, as the number of job vacancies was little changed.

In the remaining provinces, the unemployment-to-job vacancy ratios were little changed compared with June 2013.
