Following in the footsteps of its contingent in the United States, ADP Canada is now releasing labour market information for Canada on a monthly basis.

The company is measuring total non-farm payroll employment derived from the anonymous payroll data of client companies served by ADP Canada, looking at about 2.2 million workers.

“The quality, quantity and the real-time nature of our sources and information, the methodology, provides us a unique perspective on the movement in the labour market, one which will help businesses, governments, economists, analysts, researchers, academics and anyone who’s interested in workforce trends to gain a better understanding of what is happening in the Canadian job market,” said Holger Kormann, president of ADP Canada, at the launch event in Toronto.
