Canada's unemployment rate is now 7.2% with most of last months jobs coming in the private sector. Good news!!! Canada cranked out 59,000 new jobs in November as an increase in full-time work helped push the unemployment rate down 0.2 percentage points to 7.2 per cent, according to statistics released today. Statistics Canada said Friday there were job gains in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Manitoba and Prince Edward Island. There was little change in the other provinces. Much of the job gains came from the private sector, because public-sector jobs and the number of self employed people were basically unchanged.
