Canada added a greater-than-expected 19,400 jobs in March, most of them full-time, while the unemployment rate edged up to 6.7% as more people sought work, Statistics Canada data indicated on Friday. Analysts in a Reuters poll had forecast 5,000 new positions and said the jobless rate would increase to 6.7% from 6.6% in February. March marked the fourth month in a row that Canada has added jobs, the latest sign the economy is recovering from a prolonged slump caused by low oil prices. The monthly average for job creation over the previous six months dipped to 28,900 from 36,500 in February.
