The Ontario government and the NDP opposition are battling over jobs numbers in the province, with each side releasing information Friday to support its own narrative.

Vic Fedeli, minister of economic development, job creation and trade, said since the PC government's election in June of 2018, employment numbers in Ontario have risen by 256,200.

"The government has a plan to create an environment that attracts investment and encourages entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and create high-paying, good quality jobs in Ontario, and we are seeing the results of that," Fedeli said in a statement released Friday.

Shortly after Fedeli's statement, Catherine Fife, the NDP's economic growth and job creation critic, released one of her own, citing last month's Labour Force Survey, which shows Ontario shed 24,200 full-time jobs in October.
