    Canada’s labour market was little changed while the unemployment rate climbs

    The Canadian labour market was little changed with 25K (+0.1%) jobs added in November. Gains were seen in full-time work and in the private sector, with losses in part-time work and self-employment.

    The unemployment rate rose 0.1 percentage points to 5.8%. This continues the upward trend seen since April when it was at a near-record low of 5.0 per cent. Population growth continues to outpace employment growth.
