No change in the local unemployment rate.
Statistics Canada says the jobless rate remained at 5.2 percent in September, after hitting a 14 year low in August.
The number of jobs created exactly mirrored the rise in the labour force. 600 local jobs were created last month, while 600 fewer people claimed unemployment.
The local jobless rate continues to beat the national rate, which hit 5.9 percent in September.
