In its latest labour force survey, the federal agency says Canada's unemployment was 5.1 per cent last month, down from 5.2 per cent in October. Statistics Canada also noted in its report that the employment rate among core-aged women aged 25 to 54 hit 81.6 per cent in November, a record high in comparable data going back to 1976. In November, wages were up 5.6 per cent compared to a year ago, marking the sixth consecutive month of above 5.0 per cent growth. Bank of Canada governor Tiff Macklem has characterized Canada's low unemployment rate as unsustainable and said it's contributing to high inflation.

James Asselstine/OLG Asselstine had won the top prize, which by that point had grown to 5,875.50. Asselstine’s winning ticket was purchased at Quik Pik Variety on Guelph Street in Georgetown.
