(Reuters) - Canada added 10,700 jobs in January, driven by hiring in construction and leisure and hospitality, according to a report from ADP.
The new report, which is jointly developed with Moody's Analytics, is derived from ADP's payrolls data of about 40,000 companies.
"Hiring in Canada is off to a good start for 2018," said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice-president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute.
"Although we saw losses in education and finance, there were strong gains in construction and leisure and hospitality. Construction job growth is likely driven by the record number of housing units currently under construction. The leisure and hospitality industry is growing to meet the needs of consumers and international tourists."
