Unemployment is at an impressive low nationwide, but your job search could be a lot easier depending on where you live.

The Regional Labour Market Report Card released by BMO takes into account monthly job trends to help outline the best and worst cities to find a job in around Canada.

For the most part things, are looking up across the country.

“Looking across all 10 provinces, six are now seeing job growth in the 1%-to-3% range, while three more are modestly positive (Newfoundland & Labrador is the lone negative). In a nutshell, this is consistent with our view that Canadian economic growth is gravitating back toward potential, with most regions participating in this trend,” reads the BMO report.

1) Moncton, NB
2) Abbotsford, BC
3) Oshawa, ON
4) Vancouver, BC
5) Kelowna, BC
6) Toronto, ON
7) Quebec City, QC
8) Saskatoon, SK
