The Canadian Dollar declined in Forex markets as full-time employment fell for the second consecutive month in May. The net change in employment rose by an additional 25.8 thousand additional jobs, which beat expectations, but the gain in employment was fueled by part-time jobs. Statistics Canada also reported that the unemployment rate rose back to 7.0% following two months of 6.9% unemployment.

Earlier this week, the Bank of Canada maintained a neutral tone on the direction of its next rate change, citing inflation remaining below target. The BoC also considers the strength of the economy and employment before changing the target interest rate, therefore the continued decline in full-time employment may discourage the central bank from tightening monetary policy.
