(Reuters) - Canada added 13,600 jobs in August, driven by hiring in the finance, construction and manufacturing industries, according to a report from ADP.
The number of jobs added in July was revised higher to 35,500 from 11,600, ADP said. The report, which is jointly developed with Moody's Analytics, is derived from ADP's payrolls data of about 40,000 companies.
"Job growth in August was relatively modest," said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute. "Despite a pull back in natural resources and mining and the information industry, we saw strong growth in finance, construction, and manufacturing. For the first time in nearly six months the finance space added a substantial amount of jobs."
