The Canadian June employment figures disappointed today as employment fell by 9,400 jobs and the unemployment rate ticked higher to 7.1 percent from 7.0 percent. The data fell short of market expectations as business confidence wanes, sending the Canadian Dollar lower against the US Dollar. According to the report by Statistics Canada, part-time positions declined the most since July 2012.
