BREAKING: Canada lost nearly 2 million jobs in April because of the coronavirus

Canada lost nearly 2 million jobs in April, the biggest single-month drop on record. The plunge was largely due to the coronavirus, which pushed the unemployment rate to 13 per cent.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reacted to the new data from Statistics Canada during his daily COVID-19 update.

“These numbers tell us what we already knew, that right now Canadians are hurting because of this pandemic,” said Trudeau.
