The Labour Market Groups (LMG) is reporting job postings were up significantly in November in Nipissing.
There were 695 jobs posted that month, an increase of 22 percent from October.
When looking at the five-year average it’s up over 60 percent.
However, LMG says the number of sources where information is collected also increased and likely contributed to the higher figures.
Over a dozen more data sources are being used.
The top hiring industry was healthcare and social assistance followed by retail trade and accommodation and food services.
The top five employers were:
- North Bay Regional Health Centre
- Cascades Casino
- Ontario Northland
- West Nipissing General Hospital
- Voyageur Aviation Corp
Over 83 percent of the positions listed in November were full-time.
