Canada Jobs Little Changed in June After May’s Huge Gain

Canadian employment was little changed in June, government figures showed, following the biggest gain in a decade the month before.

Employment fell by 400 last month after May’s surge of 95,000 while the jobless rate was unchanged at 7.1 percent, Statistics Canada said today in Ottawa. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg News projected a 7,500 job decline and an unchanged jobless rate, according to median forecasts of surveys with 20 responses.
