Unemployment in the economic region that includes Grey and Bruce counties was down slightly last month.
The Four County Labour Market Planning Board reports the jobless rate in the Stratford-Bruce Peninsula economic region in September was 4.2 per cent -- 0.1 percentage points lower than August.
The provincial unemployment rate also fell slightly to 5.8 per cent; Nationally, it dropped to 5.5 per cent.
The local economy added 1,000 net jobs last month, but actually lost 300 full-time positions. The labour market planning board says that was offset by part-time job gains of more than 1,300.
The greatest job gains in the region were in construction, health care and social assistance and building/support services. The educational services and accommodation and food services industries saw the most job losses in September.
