Ontario's Unemployment Rate Lowest in 16 Years

Ontario's unemployment rate was 5.8 per cent in April - the lowest it has been since 2001.

The unemployment rate fell by 0.6 per cent, from 6.4 per cent in March. Compared with a year ago, employment in Ontario is up by 87,000 jobs, or 1.2 per cent.

Over the last three years, Ontario's real GDP growth has outpaced all G7 countries, supported by the government's strategic investments. Exports and business investments are increasing and the unemployment rate continues to decline.
