TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada added 7,200 jobs in February, the eighth consecutive month of job gains, led by hiring in the construction sector, a report from payroll services provider ADP showed on Thursday.

It was the smallest increase since October, while the number of jobs added in January was revised higher to 37,200 from 25,100. The report, which is jointly developed with Moody’s Analytics, is derived from ADP’s payrolls data of about 40,000 companies.
