In March, average weekly earnings of non-farm payroll employees were $888.34, up 0.8% from the previous month. On a year-over-year basis, earnings rose 2.1%.
Canada's current account deficit (on a seasonally adjusted basis) expanded by $0.6 billion to $10.3 billion in the first quarter, as a lower surplus on goods was partly offset by a lower deficit on investment income. In the capital and financial account (unadjusted for seasonal variation), increased foreign direct investment in Canada was the major contributor to the inflow of funds to the Canadian economy in the quarter.
