In November, hiring was predominantly driven by the private sector both for full-time and part-time positions. However, Canada’s hospitality, retail, and health care sectors still experienced severe labour shortages. With additional 154,000 jobs in the economy, job growth in Canada exceeded analysts’ predictions of 38,000. In addition, in the second week of November, unemployment dropped to 6%.
