Canadian June 2019 employment report highlights:

Canadian employment
  • Prior was +27.7K
  • Unemployment rate 5.5% vs 5.4% expected
  • Hourly wage for permanent employees 3.6% vs +2.7% expected
  • Participation rate 65.7% vs 65.7% prior
  • Full time +24.1K vs +27.7K prior
  • Part time -26.2K vs 0.0K prior
