OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada added 13,200 jobs in March, led by job growth in manufacturing, which posted its strongest gains in a year, according to a report from ADP released on Thursday.

“Leading job growth was manufacturing...Construction and professional services rebounded while natural resources and mining, trade, information and financial services continued to struggle,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president of the ADP Research Institute, in a statement.

The report, which is jointly developed with Moody’s Analytics, is derived from ADP’s payrolls data of about 40,000 companies.
