Printer-friendly version

The problem of unemployment has been the subject of a number of past Fraser Institute studies. This study attempts to get an analytical handle on this crucial issue by focusing on the relationship between the unemployment situation in Canada and that in the United States. In particular, persistently high rates of unemployment in Canada are analyzed in the context of the divergence of Canadian/U.S. unemployment rates in more recent years.
