WINNIPEG – Statistics Canada says the economy added 246,000 jobs last month. The national unemployment rate fell to 10.2 percent from 10.9 in July.

Most of the gains came in full-time work and more women got jobs than men.

Manitoba’s jobless rate improved to 8.1 percent from 8.2 and in Winnipeg, the rate fell from 11.1 per cent to 10.4.
