More Than 100,000 Jobs Have Been Introduced In The Last Month of Year 2022

In December 2022, the Canadian Labour Market added more than a hundred-thousand jobs to the economy of Canada. This massive event has improved Canada’s employment rate by 0.5 percent and resulted in a 0.1 decrease in the unemployment rate in Canada, bringing it down to 5.0 percent.

This improvement in employment rates has increased in Manitoba, Alberta, British Columbia, Suskacheowon, Newfoundland, and Labrador. Moreover, other provinces showed not that much of a change in the rates.

“As part of a Statistics Canada data collection initiative on new forms of employment, new data for December show that about 250,000 Canadians had provided ride or delivery services through an application or digital platform in the previous 12 months (population aged 16 to 69; not seasonally adjusted),” confirmed Statistics Canada.

This huge increase in employment was mainly because of the increase in full-time jobs and was also because of an increase in the employment of core-aged men and women (25 to 54).

Economists have been expecting a downfall in the Canadian economy, specifically in the fourth quarter economic data due to the high-interest rates, but the results were the complete opposite. The number of jobs showed no signs of instability.

“It was an absolutely massive surprise, I have called this release the random number generator in the past for a good reason, so it meant that, yes, a lot more Canadians had jobs, but there weren’t a lot more goods and services being produced, think we’re gonna have to live with these inefficiencies in the economy for some time,” commented Head of Macro Strategy at Desjardins, Royce Mendes.
