Del Duca, who took over the portfolio in a recent cabinet shuffle as Premier Kathleen Wynne positioned her government for the June 7 election, said the fact that Ontario's unemployment rate remained steady at 5.5 per cent is a sign economic growth is "strong and sustained". Shenfeld also commented that while the job losses took away from the job gains made a year ago, " the details also looking wonky, with all of the job losses in part-time work". Ontario lost 51,000 jobs in January, entirely due to losses in part-time work.
A media release from the province Friday showed employment is up 1,100 from the previous month, with 6,200 full-time jobs created month-over-month in Saskatchewan.
January's job losses lowered expectations that the Bank of Canada would hike interest rates at its next rate announcement scheduled for March.
The overall number was dragged down by a loss of 137,000 part-time positions in what was easily the category's largest one-month collapse since the agency started gathering the data in 1976. That was enough to hike the unemployment rate to 5.9%. "Overall, a mysterious mix of good and bad, with the latter's impact blunted by how strong job gains were in the lead-up to these figures", CIBC chief economist Avery Shenfeld wrote in a commentary.
Ontario shed some 59,300 part-time jobs in January, the same month the province hiked minimum wage about 20 per cent to $14 an hour - but experts say it may be too soon to know how much the two are correlated.
"January saw an (88,000) drop in employment, reversing about half of the spectacular gains we registered late a year ago". While there were job losses in Quebec, New Brunswick, and Manitoba, Alberta saw very little in the way of job losses as part-time workers were replaced with full-time workers. It was the largest monthly drop for the province since 2009.
While that is lower than the national number, the dollar amount of $27.83 in Ontario is higher than for all of Canada at $27.46 for January, said Gordon Song, an analyst with Statistics Canada, in an email. BMO Financial Group chief economist Doug Porter said the January figure brings the job market "back down to Earth".
"It doesn't change the broader narrative around the Bank of Canada".
The report is a long-waited correction in a tightening labor market that is more consistent with an economy that has been slowing down since the second half of a year ago.
