The Canadian economy added 55.9 thousand jobs in February of 2019, after creating 66.8 thousand in the previous month, while markets were expecting no change. Strong full-time gains (+67.4 thousand) more than offset a loss in part-time roles (-11.6 thousand). Ontario was the sole province with a notable employment gain in February while in Manitoba employment declined and in the remaining provinces there was little change. More people were employed in professional, scientific and technical services; public administration; natural resources; and agriculture. At the same time, there were fewer workers in accommodation and food services, as well as transportation and warehousing. The overall number of employees increased, while self-employment was little changed. Employment Change in Canada averaged 17.96 Thousand from 1976 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 94 Thousand in March of 2012 and a record low of -124.80 Thousand in January of 2009.
