Canadian employment increased 22,200 for August which was which was slightly stronger than expectations of around 19,000 for the month and following a gain of 10,900 for July. The number of part-time jobs rose by 110,400 in August while full-time jobs fell by 88,100.

About 4,500 people joined the labour force but did not find work, the report says. The headline job numbers were little changed in the other provinces, Statistics Canada said.

Youth employment declined in August, with a drop in full-time jobs offset by an increase in part-time work. But the job growth is mainly in part-time work.

"Given the super strong economic growth, I suspect workers seem secure enough to go into business for themselves", wrote Arlene Kish, director and economist with IHS Markit Economics, in an e-mail to The Globe, calling it a "great development".

Ontario posted the only notable gain among provinces, while employment declined in Nova Scotia.
