Canada’s job market has underperformed the US’s by the biggest margin in 21 years. Bank of Montreal chief economist Doug Porter said that although jobs in Canada were up 1 percent over the past year, the country has recorded job losses in eight of the last 17 months. By contrast, in the U.S. the number of jobs has grown by 2.5 percent over the past year, the fastest rate since the peak of the internet boom in the late 1990s.
