“March recorded significant job gains in the labour market, with all sectors adding jobs,” said Nela Richardson, chief economist, ADP. “The relaxed restrictions in some provinces have contributed to the job growth, led by trade, transportation and utilities; and leisure and hospitality leading the way. We are continuing to keep a close watch on the service sector and those industries that require consumer contact, as their trajectory will be determined by the path of the virus and number of cases, varying restrictions, as well as changes in business practices that lead to an increased reliance on automation post-pandemic.”



The February total of jobs added was revised from -100,800 to 271,700.
