According to the Bank of Montreal’s senior economist Robert Kavcic, “Canadian employment rose a strong 240,000 in the fourth quarter of 2021, from September to December, leaving total jobs now more than one percent above pre-COVID levels, and up 4.8 percent from a year ago.” He added that Canada’s seven out of ten provinces have now seen a full employment recovery. Ontario’s labour market was 2.1 percent above the pre-pandemic levels – “the strongest recovery in the country along with British Columbia.” Ontario’s City of Guelph was the top city for job recovery and the labour market in Canada.
