Unemployment Rate Drop

Canada’s unemployment rate dropped to its lowest level in more than two years to 6.6 %.

In February 2017, 15,300 jobs were added to the national labour market – the gains are much greater than analyst expectations.

Although surges in part-time work have been the trend in Canada, February’s employment survey indicated that most of the jobs gains were full-time.

According to the reports, approximately 105,000 people found full-time work and part-time positions dropped by almost 90,000.

The report was in contrast to January’s data which reported an increase in part-time labour.
