Canada adds 54,000 jobs in July

In Vancouver the unemployment rate rose from 4.6 per cent in June to 4.8 per cent in July.

Meanwhile, the closely watched tech sector collectively shed 2,800 employees.

According to Statistics Canada, a total of 124,200 people reported they were employed in a part-time position, a drop from the 128,300 that reported being part-time workers in July.

The unemployment rate in the Montreal region was 6.2 per cent in July, Statistics Canada said on Friday, up 0.4 percentage points from the previous month.

Manigault Newman worked in the White House for almost a year as an assistant to the president and the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.

While the number of jobless seems to have taken a large leap month-to-month, the local data can't be accurately compared, as it doesn't take seasonal factors into consideration. Employment in the goods-producing sector fell by 36,500 jobs, mostly in manufacturing.

One question policy makers have been seeking to answer is how much slack remains in the labour market, and whether a tightening jobs market could prompt the Bank of Canada to raise interest rates and trigger a slowdown in growth.

While slightly higher than the provincial average, Winnipeg saw its unemployment rate drop, from 6.8 to 6.7 per cent in the month of July. The education jobs fuelled much of the gain in Ontario, Statistics Canada said.

Employment also rose in British Columbia and Newfoundland and Labrador, while Saskatchewan and Manitoba lost jobs last month. That was better than estimates of 17,000 added jobs and an unemployment rate of 5.9 per cent. The report said the main cause of the drop was due to the fact fewer young people were looking for work.
