Canada’s economy continues to recover from the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new Statistics Canada report.
A total of 91,100 people were added to payrolls across Canada in September, representing the fourth straight monthly increase.
Payroll employment increased in eight provinces. Ontario led the way with over 43,000 new employees added to payrolls. British Columbia (BC) was second, followed by Quebec.
Nationally, job gains were driven by the services-producing sector, namely accommodation and food services, public administration, and finance and insurance.
