  • Unemployment Falls As Canada Continues To Emerge From COVID-19 Crisis

    The Canada jobs picture continued to improve in July, as employment rose by 94,000 and the unemployment rate fell to 7.5 per cent.

    The Statistics Canada Labour Market Survey shows that two months of growth in June and July totalled 325,000 jobs, putting Canada just 246,000 jobs, or 1.3 per cent, behind the pre-coronavirus February 2020 level.

    Young people aged 15 to 24 and core-aged women aged 25 to 54 spearheaded the gains.

    Employment among young people grew by 62,000, all in part-time jobs. The numbers are now at pre-pandemic levels for young men, and nearing that figure for young women.

    Core-aged women saw employment rise by 30,000 jobs, with all the gains in full-time work. Overall jobs for both sexes in the 25 to 54 age group are now 124,000 behind pre-pandemic levels.

    Ontario led the way in employment gains in July, adding 72,400 jobs, including 49,000 in the Toronto area. The unemployment rate fell 0.4 percentage points to 8 per cent.

    Manufacturing led the gains, while accommodation and food services and wholesale and retail trade also added jobs.
