At long last, Canada has finally been able to achieve a milestone in the midst of this pandemic that seems to show no signs of stopping. Thanks to the quick thinking and proper decisions made by the government of Canada, the country has slowly started to pick up the pieces left behind when the pandemic started. Employment has definitely gone down at the start of this devastating event after many businesses had to close as lockdowns were imposed and people had to stay at home. Even approved immigrants had to deal with the situation and postpone their plans to move to the country in the meantime.
With the perseverance to rise up and get back to what it had enjoyed before the pandemic hit, Canada is now enjoying the hard work that the government has done as well as the cooperation from the end of the locals and the immigrants living in the country. Being able to achieve employment levels that the country enjoyed before the pandemic is a really big thing. This big achievement happened just this September 2021.
What are the numbers?
Just this September, the economy of Canada was able to enjoy a gain in the number of jobs available. The total was at 157,000 new jobs that became available, which allowed for the employment rate in the country to go up. In fact, that number brought Canada to the employment levels that it had before the pandemic happened. As per the Labour Force Survey done by Statistics Canada, a number of provinces in the country actually had required a number of non-essential businesses like restaurants and gyms to have proof of vaccination of its employees to allow them to open.
The rate of employment actually took into account all of the individuals in Canada who were employed and were aged 15 years old and above. That number was taken as a percentage against the total population for the same age group. For September, the employment rate in Canada was at 60.9%. As per the unemployment rate, that number went down for the fourth month straight for the same month. It was at 6.9% which was the lowest ever since the pandemic started.
Immigrants also are employed
In this pandemic, many have thought that most businesses in Canada would first give priority to the locals when it comes to employment. However, it does seem like a good number of new immigrants in Canada are also now employed. In fact, the employment rate for this group has also gone up in the recent month. Thanks to everything that the government is doing, everyone in the country is benefitting from that. All the hard work of everybody has definitely paid off, including the cooperation from the immigrants and locals.
