    Canadian Employment Change comes out once per month at 7:00 am New York Time.

    What they do is calculate the number of jobs in Canada this month versus previous month. When the number is positive, it means that there are more jobs in Canada this month over previous month. When the number is negative, it means that there are less jobs in Canada this month over previous month.

    Higher number signifies that Canadian economy is doing better, which in turn means that Canada will be more likely to eventually increase its interest rate. When interest rate of a country is higher, it attracts investors to buy its currency, which increases the value of the currency versus other currencies.

    So, when Canadian Employment number comes out better than expected, traders tend to speculatively buy Canadian dollars, so USD/CAD tends to go down. When Canadian Employment number comes out worse than expected, traders tend to speculatively sell Canadian dollars, so USD/CAD tends to go up.
