The economy of Canada has added nearly one million jobs last month, as businesses reopened after COVID-19 shutdowns in Canada.

It is reported that Canada added roughly 9,53,000 jobs in June alone, out of which, 50 percent of the jobs were full time employments. Nearly 300,000 jobs were added in May 2020 alone. With restrictions being lifted in Canada, we can expect to see an increase in jobs over the coming months in Canada.

More than half of the new jobs were from Ontario and Quebec, which added 379,000 and 247,000 jobs, respectively.

British Columbia added 118,500 jobs in June, 30,000 jobs were added in Saskatchewan, 92,000 jobs were created in Alberta, 29,000 in Manitoba, 22,000 in new Brunswick, 29,000 in Nova Scotia, 6,000 jobs were created in Newfoundland and Labrador ,while 1,700 employment opportunities were added in Prince Edwards Island.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) returned to normalcy with all-program Express Entry Draws. This means that candidates in the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC) were also considered in the latest draw.

Job creation are expected to steeply increase with new exit plans by the federal government of Canada.

As COVID-19 is now fairly under control in Canada with even small and medium-scale businesses returning to normalcy, seasoned immigration experts opine that IRCC will start conducting more all-program draws in the coming days. We have already seen many provinces (see the previous news releases) conducting multiple draws in a month’s time, which is rare compared to the usual draw frequency.
