The loss of 3,700 jobs is the largest single-month drop locally since November 2015. Camrose-Drumheller is sitting at an unemployment rate of 4.5 per cent up from June's 4.4 per cent. The number of people working increased by 600, while the number of unemployed increased by 200.

Across Canada, 54,100 jobs were added to the economy in July.

Canadian unemployment rate declined by 0.2 percentage points to 5.8 percent in July, a four-decade low, according to data released by Statistics Canada Friday.

Part-time employment jumped by 82,000 jobs while 28,000 full-time positions were shed.

The agency said average hourly wage growth, which is closely monitored by the Bank of Canada, continued its gradual slide last month to 3.2% after expanding 3.6% in June and 3.9% in May. But the unemployment rate for the province rose 0.2 per cent, from 6.5 to 6.7 per cent.

Shenfeld added that there are "lots of reasons to question just how good the data really are here". CIBC predicts the next rate increase will land in October as the central bank continues to proceed cautiously along its rate-hiking path.

At the same time, employment in Alberta held steady as a decrease in full-time work was largely offset by an increase in the number of people working part time.

"In contrast, employment fell in most goods-producing industries, specifically manufacturing, construction and natural resources".

However, the details of the report revealed weaker data underneath the bigger-picture improvements. Marion's research note was titled: "Where are the private sector jobs?"

The jobless rate had been 5.8 percent from February through May, the lowest since the current method of calculating unemployment was introduced in 1976, before edging up to 6.0 percent in June. The education jobs fuelled much of the gain in Ontario, Statistics Canada said. "A solid headline number masked less than optimal details: all part-time hiring, and by and large public sector, driven by universities". In July of 2017, the unemployment rate was 10.5 per cent, though the participation rate was just 64.2 per cent, a number that is now at 65.5, pushing the labour force to 22,400 from 21,900 this time previous year. The report said the main cause of the drop was due to the fact fewer young people were looking for work.

On a year-over-year basis, employment rose by 245,900 jobs, or 1.3 percent.
