The three provinces mentioned below saw a low increase in paid jobs in March:
A boom happened in the field of hospitality in Quebec and 20,400 new paid jobs came into existence. The job vacancies increased as bars, casinos, and taverns were reopened from February 28, 2022. The number of jobs in the service sector in the whole country rose to 103,400. This happened due to the growth in the jobs in the hospitality industry and the number of job vacancies was 46,200.

The average weekly earnings of the workers in March went up to $1,170 and the average worker got a yearly hike of 4.3 percent. In spite of increase in average salary, the purchasing power is reduced due to rise in inflation.
