E Canadian Job Market Rebounds, But Only For Part-time Workers

 Underutilization in the Canadian Labour Market, June 2021

The Canadian labour market continues to be in a tremendous state of flux. In particular, while the number of workers who from home (WFH) has dropped by 400,000, there remains 4.7 million workers who do not work at their usual place of employment. Collectively, one-third of workers aged 25-54 and one-quarter of those aged 55 and older are classified as WFH. It remains to be seen whether further re-opening measures will change these patterns of work, but it does signify that there will be no return to “normalcy” in the workplace. WFH now appears to be a permanent fixture in the workplace. Also, the pace of recovery is slowing down, universally, and this will have a profound impact on future economic growth.
