Canada's labor market eked out 15,400 new jobs in February but continued to struggle as the number of full-time jobs contracted by almost 40,000, according to a government report released Friday.

For February, the report also found that average hourly wage growth, which is under close watch by the Bank of Canada ahead of interest-rate decisions, stayed solid at 3.1 per cent.

Another worrying sign for the Canadian economy is that job growth was concentrated in lower-paying service occupations, which added 25,900 jobs.

Cooper said the February reading won't set off inflation warnings for the Bank of Canada, which noted this week that wage growth is still below what it considers a normal level for an economy without labour market slack. Although there was a loss of full-time jobs last month, over the year full-time employment has increased by 1.9 per cent. The country lost 39,000 full-time positions and generated 54,700 part-time jobs, according to the report.
