Here is how employment has grown in Saskatoon over the last 15 years.
Here is the goods producing sector
(Here is a quick look at commodities prices and the average Saskatoon house price). Construction employment has experienced, without a doubt, the strongest growth in any industry. And this is not just in the goods producing sector but the services producing sector as well. While overall employment grew by 40%, construction employment has grown by almost 200% from March 96 to Jan 2012. Second best industry growth was health care employment in the services producing sector which grew at just over 76%. Construction growth has also slowed the decline of the goods producing sector as a percentage of total employment. Goods producing sector employment in Saskatoon is just over 17% of total employment. Compare that to Canada, where goods producing sector employment is just over 21%.
I will try and get the services producing sector done in the next few days.
