Employment in Canada increased by 7,200 jobs in Feb. 2020: report

The report measures the change in total nonfarm payroll employment each month on a seasonally-adjusted basis



Employment in Canada increased by 7,200 jobs from January to February according to the February ADP Canada National Employment Report, produced by the ADP Research Institute.

The report, which is derived from ADP payroll data, measures the change in total nonfarm payroll employment each month on a seasonally-adjusted basis.

“The labor market experienced relatively strong gains in trade, transportation and utilities; construction and finance and insurance,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice-president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute, in a prepared statement.

“While the labor market posted solid employment growth, job losses in impacted industries may signal the beginning of the COVID-19 fallout.”

The January total of jobs added was revised up from 25,100 to 37,200.
