Canadian economy added 54,000 jobs in July, mostly part time
The Canadian economy added 54,000 new jobs last month, causing the jobless rate to fall two-tenths of a percentage point to 5.8 per cent.
Statistics Canada said Friday that the economy added 82,000 part-time jobs, but that figure was offset by a loss of 28,000 full-time positions.
Ontario accounted for most of the gains, adding 61,000 jobs as a surge of part-time work offset a loss of full-time jobs.
