"Canada's job situation has taken a turn for the worse as a survey released Tuesday shows fewer firms are interested in hiring, while more want to cut jobs.

Manpower Canada, an executive search firm, said its latest roundup of employment intentions indicated that, for the January-to-March period next year, 16 per cent of Canadian companies believe they will add jobs while nine per cent think they will be reducing payrolls.

In the previous findings, 20 per cent of Canadian companies said they would hire people in the fourth quarter of 2008 while seven per cent of firms said they were in a firing mood."
