Canada Needs Over 250,000 New Construction Workers

Canada needs over 250,000 new construction workers between now and the year 2021, as informed by a leading industry organization.



The construction industry in Canada is growing at a very fast pace due to a booming natural resources trade as well as increased needs from the country’s population as a whole. Canadians are retiring in larger and larger numbers everyday, causing difficulty finding qualified candidates to replace workers in important sectors and offices.

This can potentially lead to construction delays which can possibly impact the construction sectors negatively.

Between 2020 and 2021, expanding activity adds 44,000 jobs in non-residential construction, while an estimate of about 8,000 jobs lost in residential. There are three distinct cycles across the regions and sectors in the forecast period.

The first cycle involves resource projects in Newfoundland and Labrador, Northern Ontario and Saskatchewan that are driving a surge in labour requirements, which began around 2011, and continued t0 2014 or 2015, as known proposed major projects peak.
The second one is concentrated around Alberta’s major projects, both in the oilsands and supporting infrastructure, it started in 2011 and 2012 and are adding to current labour requirements.
A round of oil sands expansion started in 2016 and, by 2020 and 2021, carry labour requirements about 20 to 25 per cent higher.
A third cycle of non-residential building is expected to ramp up in Ontario, mostly in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), across the 2014–2018 period, with a projected peak in 2018.
A big increase in industrial and engineering projects occurred in British Columbia from 2012 to 2015. Resource projects in B.C. peak in 2014 just as the first round of projects in other provinces comes to an end, but before the big Alberta and GTA buildup starts.
