The unemployment rate of the Canadian economy fell by a tenth of a point in September and stood at 5.9% thanks to the net creation last month of 63,000 jobs, reported today the public body Statistics Canada (EC).
EC noted that the good figures for September, which doubled the forecasts of analysts, are the result of the creation of 80,000 part-time jobs.
In the past 12 months, employment has increased in Canada by 1.2%, around 222,000 jobs.
The agency explained that the employment gains in September were concentrated in the provinces of Ontario and British Columbia, while in the rest of the territory remained unchanged.
The sectors that increased employment the most were construction, finance, insurance, real estate, public administration and agriculture.
