Job Numbers - Ontario taking action to support our job creators and workers during this difficult time

Published on July 10, 2020

Statistics Canada released its monthly employment numbers, which showed a 377,900 increase in employment in Ontario, including an increase in manufacturing, whole sale and retail, food and accommodations and construction jobs. June’s job numbers show that Ontario’s economy is beginning to stabilize from the significant economic impact of COVID-19.

This increase includes 66,200 manufacturing jobs.

That number is much more than a statistic: It represents real people, families, business owners and workers who are back to work and contributing to Ontario’s economic recovery.  However, there is more work to do. Through the Ontario Jobs and Recovery Committee, the government has been working with industry to get our economy moving again.

To support business owners, workers and the economic recovery of the province, we have launched a website to provide businesses with information on personal protective equipment suppliers so they can keep their employees, customers and clients safe as they resume their operations.

The government is committed to continue working in partnership with people, businesses and municipalities across Ontario to respond to the challenges they face and support the long-term economic recovery of our province.
