Canadians’ average weekly wages were little changed in October from the previous month, Statistics Canada reported Wednesday.

Non-farm payroll employees’ wages were $954 per week, 0.1 per cent below September’s average and unchanged from October 2015.  Meanwhile, average hours worked dipped from 32.8 hours in September to 32.6 hours in October, continuing the downward trend this year.

Retail trade, wholesale trade, and health care and social assistance were the only three sectors to show an increase in average wages over the 12 months to October.
