When Stephen Miller slipped on a grey suit, new shirt and tie, he felt like “a million bucks.”

Miller, 30, was among about 100 men sporting new looks, thanks to the Great Suit Trade-In event outfitting them for job hunting. The Victoria resident is seeking work in communications, a program he is completing through Sheridan College of Oakville, Ont.

“I needed a business suit, an actual suit to interview in,” Miller said. He works part-time, but is seeking full-time work in his field.

Greater Victoria’s unemployment rate fell to 5.7 per cent last month as the region’s tourism sector geared up for a record season.

In Greater Victoria, 5,000 more people were working in May compared with the same month a year ago, a Statistics Canada official said Friday. The number of people employed last month was 180,200.

The capital region’s unemployment rate in April was 6.2 per cent, the same as in May 2015.

Across Canada, Statistics Canada credits more public- sector jobs for the dip in the national unemployment rate to 6.9 per cent from 7.1 in April.

The numbers were impressive: 10,700 donors, 550 volunteers, 300 participating workplaces and $5.5 million raised.

Mathematical achievements aside, the success of United Way Greater Victoria’s 2015 fundraising campaign was all about community spirit and giving.

It’s why the region’s largest non-government funding organization holds its annual Spirit Awards luncheon, as it did again April 22 at the Empress Hotel.
