Twin reports suggest Canada’s jobs picture may be more robust that initially thought.
The Conference Board of Canada says its forward-looking help-wanted index is pointing to a rebound in employment in February after two soft months.
And T-D bank says that high-skilled jobs have seen a 3.2 per cent annual increase in wages between 1999 and 2010, despite warnings of a lack of high-skilled workers.
One T-D economist says the numbers suggest the problem may not be as acute as the rhetoric.
