Eastern Canada Construction Showcase
Construction has become a cornerstone of the Canadian economy. The sector employs 1.37 million Canadians or approximately 7 percent of Canada’s total workforce. Annually, construction is responsible for nearly $119 billion in economic activity or 7 percent of Canada’s overall Gross Domestic Product. In the decade ahead, the Canadian construction market is expected to become one of the top 10 largest in the world, driven primarily by global demand for natural resources and the urgent need to modernize Canada’s aging national infrastructure.
Construction has been a leading source of employment growth in Canada for more than a decade. Rising construction requirements, driven by an extended resource expansion, alongside steady population growth and significant infrastructure investments added half a million construction jobs over the past 15 years. From 2017 to 2026, The non-residential labor force is estimated to rise by 12,100 workers; a 3.4 percent increase, and the residential sector is expected to draw 94,100 first-time new entrants into the workforce from the local population aged 30 and younger, partially offsetting expected retirements*. As population growth slows and fewer youth are available to enter the workforce, construction must compete against other industries that are facing similar demographic challenges.
