Youth employment holds steady

May 6, 2011

Among Canadians between the ages of 15 and 24 employment held steady in April, reports Statistics Canada in its latest Labour Force Survey. Over the past 12 months, employment among young people was little changed. 15- to 24-year-olds in BC made the most gains last month with a 1.3 percentage point increase in their employment rate, while Alberta recorded the highest youth employment rate, which sits at 61%.
