Canada’s national statistics agency has reported an increase in Ontario’s employment for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared.
After losing more than one million jobs in a three-month time span, Ontario has added about 378,000 jobs in June, Statistics Canada said on Friday. This brings Ontario’s unemployment rate down to 12.2 per cent from 13.6 per cent last month.
The majority of jobs added in Ontario over the last month are full-time positions while only about 158,000 of them are part-time.
