Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, expressed optimism regarding Statistics Canada’s monthly employment release:

“Employment in Ontario increased by 116,900 in June. With an increasing number of people getting vaccinated and continued improvements in key public health and health system indicators, we are seeing the results of our efforts in the fight against this pandemic. As of July 8, 78 per cent of the 18+ population in Ontario had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine with more than 51 per cent having received their second dose. As restrictions are safely and cautiously lifted, more and more businesses are reopening, which means more and more Ontarians are returning to work.”

Fedeli added thanks to “the efforts of Team Ontario,” stating that the province is now making progress in its vaccine rollout and the Roadmap to Reopen. “Every careful step we take now brings us closer to the end of the pandemic and on the road to a full economic recovery.”
