  • Canada in the pandemic shifted new jobless benefits claims to its broader program of "CERB" checks, and shifted people back onto regular jobless benefits around September. StatsCan suspended reporting jobless claims figures from March until September
  • Jobless benefits claims tripled from February's 446k
  • Women now account for a record 50% of claims, up from 37% before the pandemic
  • New qualification rules mean 11% of those receiving benefits would not have qualified under the pre-pandemic system
