Canada Adds Jobs in January

Other areas of the economy may be ailing, but, at least the private-sector job market is growing,

A report from payroll services ADP Thursday showed Canada added 25,900 jobs in January, the seventh straight month of gains, led by hiring in the trade, transportation and utilities and construction sectors.

The December data was revised to show 46,700 jobs were added rather than the 46,200 reported earlier. The report, which is jointly developed with Moody's Analytics, is derived from ADP's payrolls data of about 40,000 companies
