The rate, not adjusted for seasonal changes, is a 0.8 per cent increase from July.

The unemployment rate went up in Victoria, B.C. and nationwide last month as Statistics Canada released its latest job figures Friday.

The province lost 1,700 full-time jobs but gained 700 part-time ones.

The August reading is 5.9 per cent in our region that stretches from Jasper to Peace River, that is down from July's 6.0 per cent and back to what it was in April.

Across the country, employment fell by 52,000 jobs in August with mainly part-time jobs taking a tumble.

Ontario experienced the biggest decrease of the provinces by far with a loss of 80,100 jobs - nearly all of which were part-time positions.

The increase mirrors increases in the Ontario and national unemployment rates.
