REGINA - Premier Brad Wall is trumpeting Saskatchewan's latest job numbers.

The statistics for last month show the province had the lowest unemployment rate in the country at four per cent.

In a series of posts on Twitter, Wall says Saskatchewan had the strongest growth in jobs.

The premier says natural resources aren't behind the numbers.

Wall credits the growth to agriculture, trade, manufacturing and innovation, which he says shows that Saskatchewan's economy is more diversified.

Wall also noted the employment rate for First Nations and Metis is improving, but says there is still more work to do.
