What will happen?
Canadian Employment Rate and Unemployment Change are announced on April 9, at 15:30.
Since May, which saw the unemployment rate reach 13.7% in Canada, this indicator has been going down until it came to 8.5% in November. After that, however, it started growing again and reached back up to 9.4% in January. February saw a drop to 8.2% - the lowest since the start of the pandemic in March. It was good news as the market was expecting 9.4%.
