Renee Mu, Currency Analyst

THE TAKEAWAY: [Canada’s new jobs jumped; Canada’s unemployment rate fell] > [Continued job growth add business confidence] > [USD/CAD Weakened]

Canadian employers continued to add new jobs to the labor market, rising almost six times faster than economists forecast in November as full-time and private-sector work increased significantly. Statistics Canada released a report today that showed 59,300 new jobs added in November, following gains of 1,800 jobs in October. The median forecast according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had called for a rise of 10,000 new jobs. As the same time, Canada’s jobless rate dropped to 7.2 percent from 7.4 percent, the first decline in five months.

Job growth was led by increase in full-time and private-sector work. Statistics Canada said full-time employment rose by 55,200 in November and private companies added 48,200 jobs. Today’s figures provide an improved outlook for the region as business confidence is likely to continue in the following periods.
