Canadian Employment - July 6, 2018

After two months of relatively little change, Canadian employment increased by 32,000 jobs in June and was up 1.2 per cent year-over-year. However, due to an increase in the number of people actively looking for work, the national unemployment rate rose 0.2 points to 6 per cent.

In BC, employment fell by 8,000 jobs as over 10,000 part-time positions were lost and only 2,100 full-time jobs were gained. On a year-over-year basis, employment was down 0.8 per cent.  The provincial unemployment rate moved 0.4 points higher in June to 5.2 per cent.
