A robust economy is one with a low unemployment rate, while a bad economy may be indicated by a high unemployment rate. In this post, we’ll examine the unemployment rate in Canada in more detail, as well as some recent developments.

Top employers in 2023

While there have been minor variations over the past few years because of seasonality and other reasons, Canada’s unemployment rate has remained largely steady. The unemployment rate was close to a record low in 2019 at 5.7% on average. The Canadian economy and labour sector, however, have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The unemployment rate increased to a record high of 13.7% in April 2020 as a result of firm closures, mass layoffs, and reduced hours for many employees. Although it has gradually decreased since then, the unemployment rate is still higher than it was before the pandemic.

The unemployment rate in Canada was 6.8% as of January 2022, a tad higher than the rate of 6.6% from the previous month. In 2023 Canadian economy continues to thrive and the unemployment rate dropped to 5% by the end of 2022.
