Canada’s labour force increased by 1,042,900 jobs through June, according to the ADP Canada National Employment Report released this morning.

The trade, transportation and utilities industry showed the greatest increase with the addition of 347,00 jobs, while the professional and business services industry increased by 186,000 jobs.

The manufacturing industry showed the greatest decrease, with the loss of 57,000 jobs.

“The labour market posted employment growth as a result of businesses reopening and many returning to work,” Ahu Yildirmaz, vice-president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute, said in a news release.


“Nearly every sector showed positive gains with trade and professional business services leading the way.”

The report is a monthly measure of the change in total Canadian non-farm payroll employment derived from actual, anonymous payroll data of client companies served by ADP Canada — measuring more than 2 million Canadian workers.
