Statistics Canada Report Details
A report from Statistics Canada announced on May 10, the B.C province attached 5,900 jobs in April at the corresponding time the nation posted additions of 107,000 Canada jobs — the most significant monthly progress in 43 years.
The month-over-month employment headline waves are especially volatile — so there is a reason to get even a 107k addition with a large grain of salt, Nathan Janzen, RBC senior economist told in a word to investors.
