Stats Canada says unemployment dips below four per cent in Victoria

This caused the unemployment rate to improve to 4.1 per cent from 4.2 per cent over the same period.

The unemployment rate, in part, remained steady due to a slide in labour force participation from 65.4 to 65.3 per cent. That's a decrease of one per cent from April.

But Statistics Canada says, overall, the economy lost 75-hundred jobs last month as full-time positions fell by 31-thousand and the loss was only partially offset by gains in part-time work.

Unemployment in Northeast B.C. jumped to 7.9 per cent in May, according to Statistics Canada's latest labour force survey.

Elsewhere the gainers in May were: Professional services (up 3,500 jobs compared to April), transportation & warehousing (up 2,100), business services (a gain of 2,100) and construction (up 1,900).
