Windsor unemployment rate top in the country
Windsor has the country's highest unemployment rate among major Canadian cities.
The unemployment rate actually fell in January to 9.4 per cent.
That's down from 9.7 per cent in December.
With the drop, Windsor's unemployment rate was still higher than Saguenay, Que. which has an unemployment rate of 8.9 per cent.
"It's certainly not a number we'd like to see happen in our community but we're not sitting back and waiting for it to magically disappear," Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens said.
"We're actively engaged in trying to improve that number for the benefit of everyone who lives here," he said.
Nationally, Statistics Canada said 35,000 jobs were created as the unemployment rate essentially stayed the same, falling 0.1 percentage points to to 6.6 per cent in January.
