“We saw a significant dip in job growth in Canada for the month of June,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice-president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute. “This decline likely reflects the impact of regulations on mortgage financing and a slowdown in consumer spending.”
The May total of jobs added was revised up from 2,900 to 27,800.
