TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada lost 100,800 jobs in February, driven by a decline in hiring in the leisure and hospitality as well as the trade and construction sectors, a report from payroll services provider ADP showed on Thursday.
The January data was revised to show 65,800 jobs were lost rather than a decline of 231,200. The report, which is derived from ADP's payrolls data, measures the change in total nonfarm payroll employment each month on a seasonally-adjusted basis.
