The index of total employment indicates changes in the annual average of the total number of persons employed. Total employment includes those who worked for one hour or more in a survey period, and includes both part-time and full-time employment. The indicator used is an index with a base year of 2000 (=100) of the average of total employment in each year. In 2000, total employment was 358,500 in Winnipeg and 14.7 million in Canada.
From 2000 to 2010, Winnipeg’s total employment grew by 14%, 2% less than the national average. Over the last 10 years, Winnipeg’s employment growth was overshadowed by several other major metropolitan areas in Canada with Calgary topping the list at 31%. Gains in employment growth were, however, noted over the last five years where Winnipeg’s average growth rate of 2% was higher than the national average and had surpassed both Montreal and Toronto.
