Good news from Canada again! Statistics Canada has reported that the country has added 378,000 jobs in September 2020. This has caused the unemployment rate to fall to 9% which is amazing progress from 13.7% as was recorded in May 2020.
The agency has attributed this to the return of Canadians to their back-to-school routines. Though both males and females in families are now increasingly attending offices again, the study noted that compared to fathers in the family, mothers are taking longer to return to their workplaces.
In fact, the addition of 378,000 jobs in September 2020, is more than double the estimate that was made for the month as the COVID-19 difficulties are still prevalent. The original estimate was 150,000. This presents a highly positive scenario that will also be a boost to immigration Canada needs dearly at this point in time.
And talking about the unemployment rate, which was 10.2% in August 2020, has come down to 9% in September 2020. The expected fall in unemployment was to reach 9.8%. The employment scene is picking up in a very encouraging manner for sure!
Also, the number of mothers who worked under half the number of hours they usually worked in September 2020 was 70% higher when compared to February 2020. This figure was 23.7% for fathers.
Canada is keeping up the prospects for its citizens and immigrants to recoup their lives and livelihoods. They are given the opportunities to work in Canada just as they did before the pandemic struck.
