7200 job losses in March after jumps in January, February

America Created 196,000 Jobs in March, Beating Expectations for 170,000

The Canadian economy lost 7,000 jobs in March but the unemployment rate remained at 5.8 percent, the government statistical agency reported on Friday.

The jobs boost is an increase from the 20,800 jobs the industry added in February and the 41,600 jobs added in January.

On a national level, the economy shed 7,200 jobs in March after a pair of strong monthly gains that helped Canada to post its best quarter of job creation since late 2017. Employment in food services and drinking places trended up last month, adding 27,000 jobs.

And while, at 3,000, there are 500 fewer people seeking work, those of working age not participating stood at 21,900, compared to 18,800 a year ago.

The service sector saw the biggest gains in employment.

For the Bank of Canada, the key area of today's report is likely wages, where growth was effectively unchanged at 2.3% y/y.

For all employees on private nonfarm payrolls, the average workweek rose by 0.1 hour to 34.5 hours in March, as their average hourly earnings rose by 4 cents to 27.7 USA dollars.

"With a strong March employment report now in the books, we've gotten some reassurance that the labor market is still strong", said Steve Rick, chief economist at CUNA Mutual Group. The average workweek for production and nonsupervisory employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 0.1 hour to 33.7 hours. There was also a modest uptick in the duration measures of unemployment with both the average and median durations rising, as well as the share of long-term unemployed.

That's down from 6.5 per cent for the same month a year ago. Bars and restaurants added 27,000.

"So after a run of six consecutive employment gains, in which almost 300,000 jobs were added to the total, it was little surprise to see a modest give-back of 7,000 in March".

According to the Labor Department, average hourly earnings in March were 3.2 percent higher than they were a year earlier.
