Ke Pang - Exchange rates and employment in Canada

We are often concerned that Canadian employment suffers when exchange rates appreciate. Dr. Ke Pang (Assistant Professor, Laurier Economics) and her colleagues investigated this problem and found that the overall employment effect of exchange rates is small. An appreciation of the Canadian dollar - by making our exports more expensive - has a significant effect on employment in the manufacturing industry, but little impact on nonmanufacturing employment.
The study has been accepted for publication with Canadian Public Policy. Read the working paper.
