On October 7, 2022, Statistics Canada published Labour Force Survey for September 2022. The unemployment rate fell to 5.2% in September, up from 5.4% in August. Among young women aged 15 to 24, employment decreased for a second consecutive month in September but expanded among male youth and core-aged women. Four provinces had increased employment opportunities, with British Columbia leading the charge. On the other hand, Ontario and Prince Edward Island saw a decrease in the number of people looking for a job. Finally, September statistics show that just under one million people aged 55 to 64 identified retirement as their main activity (983,000; 57.5%).
