Provincial EI numbers virtually unchanged

Just under 55 thousand people in BC were claiming EI benefits in October.

“The last few month we have seen good growth here in BC when it comes to employment and that is reflected to the number of beneficiaries.”

The EI rate for Prince George rose 3.4 percent last month to the tune of 1850 people.
