PA adds jobs, but unemployment rate up

  • The Canadian economy had a surge of hiring last month but most of the new jobs were part time

Nationally, Statistics Canada says the country added 54,100 jobs in July and the national unemployment rate fell to 5.8 per cent.

Data collected for the Labour Force Participation Survey showed Windsor's participation rate rose a tenth of a percentage point in July to 60.5 per cent.

The increase comes as the employment rate declined from 63.5 per cent in June to 63.1 per cent in July, as 11,800 fewer people were employed in the region, according the federal statistics agency's monthly Labour Force Survey.

While slightly higher than the provincial average, Winnipeg saw its unemployment rate drop, from 6.8 to 6.7 per cent in the month of July.

The economy added 54,100 jobs, another strong month following a 31,800 gain in June. Camrose-Drumheller is sitting at an unemployment rate of 4.5 per cent up from June's 4.4 per cent.

Ian Wright makes bold Arsenal vs Man City prediction
Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes playing Man City on the opening day of the season is a great time to face them . People say now we have to forget what we did last season.

The healthy rise though was driven entire by part-time employment, which jumped by 82,000 jobs, while 28,000 full-time positions were shed.

Average hourly wage growth, which is scrutinized by the Bank of Canada, continued its gradual cool-off last month with a year-over-year reading of 3.2 per cent.

While the number of jobless seems to have taken a large leap month-to-month, the local data can't be accurately compared, as it doesn't take seasonal factors into consideration.

Overall, the goods-producing sector lost 36,500 jobs in July, with a notable loss of 18,400 positions in manufacturing and a drop of 12,300 in construction.

"Ontario's share of paid employment in Canada [is] at roughly 39% in 2018, an increase compared to past year". Employment rose in a number of services-producing industries: educational services; health care and social assistance; information, culture and recreation; and the "other services" industry.
