More Part Time Jobs in Canada in January

According to Statistics Canada, the country’s employment saw an increase of 35,000 jobs, predominantly part-time, causing concerns over worker benefits and job security. Over the past 12 months, employment rose by 0.7% with majority of the growth happening in the second half. In January, part-time employment spiked by 47,000 while full-time saw no significant changes. This trend of rising employment, driven mainly by part-time roles, has been prevalent for the last five years. The growth was largely attributed to women aged 55 and over, suggesting older employees are increasingly filling part-time job vacancies.
