New reports and analytical models will add even greater depth to our labour market information, further enhancing its value to the industry.
BuildForce is expanding its suite of labour market information (LMI) products and tools to provide even more accurate and timely insights into the demands, pressures and opportunities driving construction activity across 33 trades and occupations – ultimately helping industry make more informed workforce-management decisions. These new tools will complement our existing LMI resources, including the national summary reports, province-specific highlight reports and PowerPoint presentations, and labour market forecast datasets available at www.constructionforecasts.ca.
”BuildForce’s approach to forecasting construction demand sets the standard for North America,” says Dale Belman, President of the Institute of Construction Economics Research. “Not only is its LMI model technically sophisticated, but the high level of interaction between its provincial committees allows forecasts to be continuously improved while also educating stakeholders about the construction economy. The U.S. construction industry would do well if it can follow the path forged by BuildForce.”
