July Jobs Numbers Released

The national unemployment rate was 5.8 per cent in July. Statistics Canada also released seasonally adjusted, three-month moving average unemployment rates for major cities.

It cautions, however, that the figures may fluctuate widely because they are based on small statistical samples.

Here are the jobless rates last month by city (numbers from the previous month in brackets):

- Toronto 6.1 (6.3)

- Hamilton, Ont. 4.7 (4.6)

- Kitchener-Cambridge-Waterloo, Ont. 5.7 (6.0)

- London, Ont. 5.4 (5.5)

- Windsor, Ont. 6.0 (5.8)
