The unemployment rate shows that the come-back from the economic weakness seen during the winter months is healthy. Statistics Canada released a report showing the smallest trade deficit in over eight months, fueled by an increase in exports. Although the back-to-back quarters of decrease in the Canadian economy were seen, the Bank of Canada expected it to be temporary, and expects that growth would pick up throughout the rest of the year. The latest report showed the goods-producing industry added 4,900 jobs in Canada, and the service industry added 22,800 positions. Ontario increased jobs by 20,900, and British Columbia had an increase of 16,800 positions in the month of May.
