On April 9 the Globe and Mail published an article saying that: “Canada’s labour recovery got a big boost in March, though progress could prove short-lived as parts of the country enact tighter restrictions to contain a third wave of COVID-19. According to Statistics Canada employment rose by 303,100 last month and the unemployment rate fell to 7.5 per cent from February’s 8.2 per cent. The gain was triple what economists were expecting. The labour surge was driven by six-figure gains in both full-time and part-time work, while the number of self-employed jumped by 56,000 people, the first increase in three months. Around two-thirds of job creation came from the private sector.” Read article here: (subscription needed)
