Canadian Job Report

Canada’s economy added 40,000 new jobs in December, dropping the unemployment rate to a four-year low of 7.1 percent, Statistics Canada reported Friday.

All of the jobs created were considered full-time employment.

Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island all posted job gains, although Ontario stood out with 33,000 net new jobs, the second straight month that province has posted such a strong showing.

Nova Scotia lost jobs during the month.
