OTTAWA - Statistics Canada says average weekly earnings of non-farm payroll employees were $928 in November, up 0.9 per cent from October.

It says earnings were up 2.5 per cent on a year-over-year basis.

On that annual basis, average weekly earnings rose more than the national average in six of the 10 largest industrial sectors, led by wholesale trade and health care and social assistance.

Average weekly earnings in wholesale trade increased 4.1 per cent to $1,100 year-over-year, while earnings in health care and social assistance rose by 3.9 per cent to $858.

Year-over-year earnings of non-farm payroll employees increased in eight provinces, with the highest growth in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Earnings declined in Quebec over the same period, while they were little changed in Nova Scotia.
