The city's unemployment rate stood at 5.9 per cent in June, according to a Statistics Canada Labour Market Survey.
That's down from 7.7 per cent for the same month last year as the number of people holding down jobs and those seeking jobs are both 900 higher than the figure for June 2016.
In all, 47,900 are now working and 3,000 seeking work.
There was no change in the unemployment rate from May.
The figures are based on a three-month rolling average and include both full-time and part-time employment.
