According to Stats Can on Friday Oct. 5th, we Canadians are nearly all employed!

In September, we dipped below the 6% unemployment rate. Not only that, but our employers increased our hourly rates by an average of 4.2% (did yours??) while the cost of living increased by only 1.7%. Oh Canada!

    Is the overall unemployment rate actually lower? The unemployment rate I find a little deceiving becuase it’s based on the participation rate. Do you happen to know if this period has a different level of participation?

  2. Traciatim – the figure came from Stats Can. I’m going on good faith that they factor in participation, so it’s comparing apples to apples.
