Canada's monthly labour force characteristics stats have estimates of population:

These numbers are for working-age people, but they show the population going up by 2.5% from July 2019-July 2020, and 0.2% just from this past June to July. No big slowdown evident in the statistics so far.

Employment is down 7.7% from a year earlier, which probably underestimates the covid impact a bit by including some growth months from last August up to March or so. This is about middle of the pack for Canadian cities. Presumably many of these people received CERB. None of this is good but it does not look catastrophic.
