Employment in Ontario rose by 35,300 jobs, including an increase in youth employment of almost 21,000. In February, Ontario created nearly 70 per cent of all new jobs in Canada.
Job creation and economic growth are top priorities for the new Ontario government. Since the recessionary low of June 2009, full-time employment in Ontario has increased by 380,600 net jobs. And the province continues to outpace the United Kingdom, the United States, and the Great Lakes States in job creation.
The new Ontario government is committed to balancing the budget by 2017-18 in a way that is both fiscally responsible and fair, while creating jobs for the people of this province.
