That represents 6,700 fewer beneficiaries of Employment Insurance on a monthly basis as the unemployment rate in February stood at 7.4 percent, the agency said.
"The number of beneficiaries fell in six provinces, with the largest percentage declines occurring in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Quebec," StatsCan said. "The largest percentage decline was observed in Quebec, where claims fell 6.3 percent."
The agency said there was little change in the other four provinces.
