Canada's economy added 48,000 jobs in January
Canada's unemployment rate dipped to 6.8 per cent last month as the economy added 48,000 jobs, Statistics Canada reported Friday.
The numbers blew past economists' expectations of a loss of 10,000 jobs after a strong showing the previous month, too.
Instead, the economy has added nearly 100,000 jobs since the end of November and averaged more than 40,000 new jobs a month since August — the strongest six-month period in more than 15 years.
