“Wage growth decelerated, full-time employment fell and the public sector was responsible for most of the jobs created.”

“However, this report has limited implications for the Bank of Canada. Even if details were better, the BoC would not feel compelled to respond to one month of strong job growth and the softer wages gives further incentive to look through headline employment.”
