Job Vacancy in Canada – The lowest job vacancy rates were in Quebec

Job vacancy rates across Canada

The territories had the highest job vacancy rates in Canada, led by Yukon at 5.1%. The provinces with the highest rates were Alberta and New Brunswick (both at 3.4%). Quebec, at 2.1%, had the lowest job vacancy rate, followed by Newfoundland and Labrador (2.4%) and Manitoba (2.5%).

The job vacancy rate refers to the share of jobs that are unfilled out of all payroll jobs available. It represents the number of job vacancies expressed as a percentage of labour demand; that is, the sum of all occupied and vacant jobs.
