Unemployment rate declined 0.2 percentage points in Canada 

stats-canada

Employment was little changed in April, while the unemployment rate declined 0.2 percentage points to 6.5%,  lowest rate since October 2008, Statistics Canada has reported. The decrease was mostly the result of fewer youth searching for work.

Compared with 12 months earlier, there were 276,000 (+1.5%) more people employed and the unemployment rate was 0.6 percentage points lower. Over the same period, the total number of hours worked rose 1.1%.
