Canada Has Recovered Two-Thirds Of Pandemic Job Losses
The August Labour Force Survey, released last Friday by Statistics Canada, reflects labour market conditions five months after the onset of the COVID-19 economic shutdown.
By mid-August, public health restrictions had substantially eased across the country and more businesses and workplaces had re-opened.
The great news is that 84% of the headline jobs gain in August was in full-time positions. This follows the surge in part-time jobs in July.
The number of Canadians working from home declined for the fourth consecutive month.
Employment Increased in Most Provinces in August--Led by Ontario and Quebec. Employment rose in most Western British Columbia reported the largest increase up 15,000.
