Canada Inflation Rate Drops to 2.8% while Unemployment Rates Rise to 5.4%
With the recent shift in Canada’s inflation rate falling to 2.8%, the economy is starting to drop towards the target rate of 2%. Canada’s economy still has room for improvement but is making strides in the right direction for both businesses and hard-working Canadians.
Canada's current unemployment rate rose to 5.2% in May, the first increase since August of 2022 with current unemployment rates sitting at 5.4% (*Statistics Canada*). With an improving economy comes various changes to the job market including more open positions due to companies rehiring because of inflation-induced layoffs, and more accommodating workplaces.
