Windsor unemployment rises in August

Canada Sheds Jobs in August, Pushing Jobless Rate To 6.0%

There was a jump in the Red Deer area unemployment rate last month.

The increase mirrors increases in the Ontario and national unemployment rates.

The economy dropped a net 51,600 jobs in August on a seasonally adjusted basis, Statistics Canada said Friday. The August employment numbers followed an increase of 54,100 positions in July, according to CTV News.

The province lost 1,700 full-time jobs but gained 700 part-time ones.

The local unemployment rate has gone down slightly.

Part-time employment declined by 92,000 jobs while full-time positions rose by 40,400 positions. Employment in the province increased by 16,000 last month, but the unemployment rate remained the same as more people entered the labour market.

British Columbia's 5.3 per cent rate in August was the lowest in the country, though that rate was up from five per cent in July. Canadian economists had predicted the rate would drop to 5-point-9 per cent on an increase of 5-thousand jobs.

The latest report also says average hourly wage growth, which is closely watched by the Bank of Canada, continued its gradual slide last month to 2.9 per cent after expanding 3.2 per cent in July and 3.6 per cent in June.

Ontario bared the brunt of losses in the professional, scientific, technical services industries.
