It declined in the manufacturing and construction sectors, but grew in public administration, as well as in finance, insurance, and real estate and leasing.

The number of self-employed workers declined.

In Quebec, the unemployment rate increased by 0.2 percentage points from September to October, from 4.8% to 5%. Employment declined 0.2%, mainly because of a decline in full-time employment.
