Canada sheds 6,400 jobs in June
The Canadian economy lost 6,400 jobs in June as gains in full-time work were offset by losses of part-time jobs, Statistics Canada says.

It was a better showing than what a consensus of economists were expecting, which was a loss of about 10,000 positions.
The number of full-time jobs increased by 64,800. However, 71,200 part-time jobs were lost in the month.

6 ways continuing education can close Canada's skills gap
Ask an employee from just about any industry in Canada, and they'll tell you: there is a huge gap between the training required to move up the career ladder and the training provided by their employers. A recent survey found that while 71 per cent of employers agree they have a responsibility to provide career management programs for their employees, only 29 per cent actually offer them. So how do we close this gap in training needs?
Canadian innovation continues to fade despite billions in federal cash

The self-assessment, contained in a "secret" memorandum to Finance Minister Joe Oliver, underlines how chronically sluggish business innovation remains "of great concern" for Canadian productivity.
4 key areas to watch in Canada's labour market
As sectors that traditionally benefit from a weaker dollar and slumping oil prices, manufacturing and logistics are currently driving positive job growth in Ontario. Randstad Canada has seen significant quarter over quarter sequential gains in light industrial temporary roles, and staggering year over year gains in permanent direct hires throughout Ontario's industrial sector.
