Job postings in Nipissing dropped in November.
The Labour Market Group (LMG) reports there were 518 job postings that month.
It’s down over 14% from October.
“This month-over-month drop is likely attributed to a combination of seasonal trending and indications of an upcoming recession,” states the LMG monthly Jobs Report.
It’s also down over 25% compared to November 2021, which officials say “further supports a downturn in the local labour market”.
Just over 250 employers posted jobs in November.
Year-over-year, LMG says that’s about 60 fewer employers.
The top five employers posting jobs in November were:
– North Bay Regional Health Centre
– Canadore College
– Near North District School Board
– Ontario Northland
– Cascades Casino
Health Care & Social Assistance was the top hiring industry followed by Retail Trade and Educational Services.
