The index was on track for a 0.7 percent decline over the week.

Canada added far more jobs than expected in May as hiring picked up in construction and manufacturing, although a drop in the unemployment rate to a 10-month low stemmed from fewer people looking for work. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Phil Berlowitz)
