In the last two months, Canada’s economy has lost jobs.
According to the ADP Canada National Employment Report, Canada added 30,400 jobs in June.
The manufacturing sector did not add any jobs, while there were 10,400 jobs added in construction.
The natural resources and mining sector lost -500 jobs.
Most jobs added were in the service sector, with 7,000 added in trade/transportation and utilities, while 8,800 were added in professional/business services.
However, the job gains in June have been dampened by a revision to the May figures.
Originally, it was reported that 16,000 jobs were lost in May. Now, ADP says 36,700 jobs were lost in May.
As a result, Canada has experienced a net loss of jobs in the last two months, another sign that the economic policies of the federal government are failing.
