For the fifth straight month there has been a “significant” year-over-year drop in the number of job postings in the Parry Sound district.   

That from the Labour Market Group (LMG), which says 131 job postings were recorded in July.    

It’s down over 26 per cent from the same month a year ago.   

“This continues to adds to the indication of a possible economic downturn,” states the LMG July Jobs Report.
