The Canadian Economic Goal of Full Employment Canada’s government and the Canadian economic system are currently doing a poor job of addressing the values of Canadian citizens when it comes to their inputs concerning Canada’s employment rate.

Before the Canadian recession around 2009, the country was very close to full employment, but the economics decline caused Canada to fall farther away from their goal. As of now, Canada has mostly recovered all of the jobs that were lost during the downturn.
