Western Canada Construction Showcase
Construction has become a cornerstone of the Canadian economy. The sector employs 1.37 million Canadians or approximately 7 per cent of Canada’s total workforce.
Annually, construction is responsible for nearly $119 billion in economic activity or 7 per cent 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.
Accounting for about 9 percent of the Western Canada and Territories’ gross domestic product (GDP), the construction industry employs over half a million people. With as many as 17,000 new workers needed by 2018 to meet rising labour demands, the potential for the industry is clear in Western Canada.
Our Spring 2017 issue Western Canadian Construction Showcase will include:
- Detailed overview from BuildForce Canada on the Canadian Construction Market – specific to Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
- Features outlining key challenges that contractors face in today’s market
- A Leading Residential Developer showcase for Western Canada. How to balance record sales prices with low inventory.
