Employment in Canada increased by 30,400 jobs from May to June according to the June ADP® Canada National Employment Report. Broadly distributed to the public each month, free of charge, the ADP Canada National Employment Report is produced by the ADP Research Institute®. The report, which is derived from actual ADP payroll data, measures the change in total nonfarm payroll employment each month on a seasonally-adjusted basis.
“June experienced higher acceleration in job growth following a sharp decline in May,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute. “Construction delivered the biggest contribution to the increase, along with professional/business services which reflects the increasing demand for high skilled workers.”
The May total of jobs added was revised down from -16,000 to -36,700.
The July 2019 ADP Canada National Employment Report will be released at 8:30a.m.ET on August 15, 2019.
