Reuters – Canada added 245,800 jobs in August, the fourth consecutive monthly increase though the pace of new gains slowed, bringing employment within about a million jobs of pre-pandemic levels, Statistics Canada said on Friday.

“We are seeing some, as expected, cooling down in decent job gains. Still quite robust though,” said Doug Porter, chief economist at BMO Capital Markets.

“We’ve got a long way to go to before we make up the deep losses that we saw in March and April,” he added. “But this is another big step in the right direction.”
