July 18, 2019

The number of jobs in Canada rose by 30,400 in June from May, according to the “ADP Canada National Employment Report.” That compares to a month-over-month decline of 36,700 jobs in May.

“June experienced higher acceleration in job growth following a sharp decline in May,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, VP 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.”

Construction added 10,400 jobs, leading the way in the goods-producing sector. Natural resources and mining, also part of the goods-producing sector, lost 500 jobs while manufacturing posted no new jobs.

In the service-providing sector, “professional/business services” led the way by adding 8,800 jobs. “Trade/transportation and utilities” added 7,000 jobs. Information added 3,400 jobs while “finance/real estate” lost 2,000 jobs.

The report is derived from ADP payroll data.
