Atlantic Economy Becoming Less Seasonal

November 1, 2004

November 2004
The overall seasonality of employment in Atlantic Canada has declined steadily over the last two decades helped by steady growth in full-year employment in sectors such as call centres and health care while the number of seasonal jobs has been static. Despite these positive developments, the region is barely tracking trends elsewhere in Canada and seasonality has increased in some industries. Consequently, the four Atlantic provinces remain the most seasonal economies in Canada , with a greater dependence upon seasonal industries and larger seasonal swings in all sectors. The seasonal nature of employment in the Atlantic region is reflected in its much higher seasonal use of employment insurance. This Report Card examines these recent trends in seasonal employment in Atlantic Canada.
