Canadian Employment: 1010.7k Jobs lost in March – in Line with Recent Themes

Canadian Labor Market Talking Points:

  • Canada lost 1010.7k jobs in March, nearly doubling the expectation of 500k.
  • The Canadian Dollar shows signs of strength following a stable end to March.
  • Markets begin to weigh estimates of Canada Q2 annualized GDP in the range of -20% to -35%.

This aggressive monetary easing has not just been in anticipation of a labor market shock, but it has been in response to massive oil price volatility – one of Canada’s primary exports.

As the Saudi-Russian oil price war has begun taking steps toward a resolution in past weeks, the Canadian Dollar has stabilized. However, this bout of strength may not last as market appetite for risk levels off and demand for safe havens rises. Up next today is University of Michigan Sentiment followed by US CPI tomorrow.
