Post COVID-19 Employment in Canada

The new statistics show how easing coronavirus-related restrictions is affecting employment in Canada.

By Passing every month employment losses slowed. The total hours worked in the retail trade in May was 2.6% compared to the month before. Certain retail industries saw payroll employment increases in May. Motor vehicle and parts dealers, and building material and garden equipment supply dealers saw about a 4% increase.

The easing of coronavirus restrictions in May and June brought the initial recovery of employment to 9.2% of February’s levels.

The labour force survey suggested that Canada’s labour market recovery was well underway in all provinces and most sectors in June.
