Mixed results with December’s job postings

Job postings were down month-over-month in December in Parry Sound, but the Labour Market Group (LMG) says there is a positive sign with the year-over-year figure. 

There were 92 job postings in December. 

That’s down about 22% from November. 

LMG says the decline is likely due to seasonal trends heading into the holiday season. 

But, officials point out the year-over-year figure is up

“The 2022 figure is slightly above; +5.7% (+5) the December 2021 total which is a positive sign that the possible recession signs seen from the previous few months have stalled; at least temporarily,” states the LMG Jobs Report. 

December saw 55 employers posting jobs. 

The top five employers posting jobs include:

  1. Walmart – Parry Sound
  2. West Parry Sound Health Centre
  3. Lady Isabelle Nursing Home
  4. Near North District School Board
  5. YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka

Health Care & Social Assistance was the top hiring industry, followed by retail trade. 

Educational services rounds out the top three.
