Canada Talent Market Monthly - February 2018

January was a rough start to the year for Canada, with a decline of 88,000 jobs and an unemployment rate that rose to 5.9%. While gains were made in full-time work (+49.000), they were offset by losses in part-time (-137,000). Year over year, however, employment has grown by 289,000 jobs – all due to full-time gains.

The Canada Talent Market Monthly provides a snapshot of current employment trends and labour statistics pertinent to the Canadian market.
