(Reuters) - Canada's economy created six times more jobs than forecast in June, a near-record gain that pressures the central bank to raise interest rates again this month even as cracks in the U.S. recovery threaten to cool the country's scorching growth.

The decline in starts is further evidence that the housing market, which helped drive the recovery but was also feared to be overheating, will slow in the second half.
