Prince George, B.C. –  British Columbia  has  the highest rate of  job vacancies in the country, according to  the 2nd quarter report from the Canadian Federation of Independent business.

The report  pegs B.C.’s vacancy rate  at 3.1%,   which translates to 56 thousand openings.

The vacancy rate is climbing nationwide  says  CFIB’s Chief Economist Ted Mallet  ““We are starting to see a growing number of unfilled jobs in most provinces across the country.”

Nationally, the job vacancy rate is  2.6%.

The CFIB report  indicates the  rising vacancy rates in the second quarter  were most evident in the oil and gas sectors, construction, manufacturing, transportation and hospitality. In contrast, vacancy rates declined in the information, arts and recreation, finance and real estate industries.
