Earlier this week the  Canadian bankruptcy figures for June 2010 were released. Here’s a table with the year to date figure.

And here’s a chart of the bankruptcy data since the beginning of the available data series.

Looking at the chart it apparent that, like unemployment, bankruptcies have come off of their recessionary high but remain elevated.  If we look at the period before and through the recession (July ’07 thru June ’10 – three years) it’s evident that both unemployment and bankruptcies are falling more slowly than they went up.
