  • New Brunswick adds 3,600 jobs in January, pushing unemployment rate down

Positive news in the Cariboo too where the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 per cent from 7.3 per cent year-over-year.

The statistics show that Camrose-Drumheller has the highest unemployment rate of all the economic regions in the province.

"Definitely the headline job gain was very impressive", said BMO chief economist Douglas Porter.

Alberta, hit hard by the oil-price decline, shed jobs for a second-straight month and saw its jobless rate rise to 6.8 per cent, up from 6.4 per cent.

"On a year-over-year basis, the number of private sector employees rose by 293,000 (+2.5 per cent), while the number of public sector employees grew by 62,000 (+1.7 per cent)".

In Brantford, Statistics Canada estimates that 1,600 job seekers found work in January.

In a comparison to last January most regions saw their unemployment rate decline.

Halyk said the Workforce Planning Board's new labour market report was titled Help Wanted: Building the Talent Pool because so many employers are struggling to find workers.

Even with the improvement, the January number remained just under the inflation level, which suggests Canadians' salaries could have a tough time keeping up with rising prices for consumer goods.

Employment was up 0.9 per cent from January 2019 in Quebec. The Bank of Canada has expressed confidence that wage growth will pick up its pace.

Part-time job gains outpaced full-time, 36,000 versus 30,900, and youth age 15 to 24 led employment growth, accounting for a whopping 79 percent of total job gains and virtually all the part-time gains.

Across Canada, an estimated 67,000 more people were working, but a larger influx of job seekers pushed the monthly unemployment rate slightly to 5.8 per cent.

The details were relatively solid too, with the all of the jobs coming in paid employment and a slight tick up in wage growth despite Ontario's minimum wage increase falling out of the annual calculation.
