Statistics Canada says the local economy was stagnant in January with little change in jobs but an increase in the jobless rate.
The unemployment rate rose to 5.9 percent from December's revised 5.8 percent.

This was reflected in the national numbers of 137,000 part-time job losses and 49,000 full-time position gains, for a net job loss of 88,000 spots.
"If you take a six-month average, you're still sitting pretty close to 20,000, which is what people generally view as being consistent with a Canadian economy that's either at trend or slightly above trend from the rear-view perspective", David Tulk, Toronto-based institutional portfolio manager at Fidelity Investments, said by phone.

In Ontario the jobless rate fell to 5.5 per cent from 5.6 per cent in December. Employment "showed a long-expected correction in January".
The wage improvements in January arrived the same month that saw Ontario take the controversial step of raising its minimum wage.
"Today's sour news is at least in part an offset to the unusually strong gains seen late past year, and most likely does not represent the start of new trend".
Victoria saw an unemployment increase for the second consecutive month at 3.9 per cent from 3.5. The growth represents an increase of 2.8 per cent.
Others didn't expect the January report, on its own, to have a significant impact on the outcome of the Bank of Canada's next rate announcement.
