November jobs revised up to 74,000 from 39,100
TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada lost 13,000 jobs in December, driven by hiring decline in the trade, transportation and utilities and construction sectors, according to a report from ADP.
The November total of jobs added was revised up to 74,000 from 39,100, ADP said.
"Despite a dip in job growth in December, overall gains for 2018 were strong," said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice-president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute. "Of the more than 340,000 jobs added this year, education and healthcare, professional services and leisure and hospitality were significant drivers of growth."
