Job gains

Canada cranked out 59,300 new jobs in November and most of them were full-time gigs.



  • Canada saw the creation of 59,300 net new jobs last month which is more than what analysts had expected. It was enough to drop the unemployment rate to two-tenths of a point to 7.2%. Nearly all of the gains were in full-time positions in the private sector.
