Canada Adds 10K Jobs in Sept.
The economy continues to roll on, as evidence by there being more jobs opening up to Canadians during September.
Figures released Friday morning by Statistics Canada showed the economy added 10,000 jobs last month, about what economists were expecting, as a surge in full-time work was offset by a loss of part-time positions.
The agency also said that the jobless rate stayed at 6.2%during the month, tying an almost nine-year low dating back to October 2008.
It was the 10th month in a row that the economy added jobs.
The economy added 112,000 full-time jobs, the data agency calculated in its monthly Labour Force Survey. But that surge came at the expense of an almost equally large loss of 102,000 part-time jobs.
The nation's number crunchers concluded that much of the gains came in Ontario, which added 35,000 jobs. Every other province either added a small number of jobs or lost a few thousand, led by Alberta (7,800 jobs), while Quebec lost 7,600 and British Columbia lost 6,700.
