Poor Job Results Lead To Sluggish Economy



The latest unemployment report from Statistics Canada highlights a challenging labour market and suggests a slower underlying momentum to the economy than the GDP growth would indicate, according to HSBC’s Chief Economist David Watt.The employment rate (employment to population ratio) has fallen to 61.3 per cent from 61.4 per cent. While the decline in August was small, it was symbolically important. The employment rate is now back to the low point reached in the wake of the global financial crisis and recession. Job creation is not keeping up with population growth.
