Fewer people receiving employment insurance in Saskatchewan

REGINA -- With the booming Saskatchewan economy, more and more people are finding ways to support themselves.

According to Statistics Canada, the number of people receiving Employment Insurance in Saskatchewan dropped 4.6 per cent from March to April. The data also revealed that only 7,650 people in Saskatchewan remained on EI in the month of April, reflecting the high demand for labour throughout the province.

"I think it's indicative of the strength of the Saskatchewan economy," said Rob Norris, minister for advanced education, employment and labour. "Our commitment is not just growth for growth's sake, but to ensure that the people of Saskatchewan are benefiting from the growth that's underway.
