Meeting Construction and Maintenance Workforce Challenges
Construction industry, owners, government
In early 2010, a group of construction and maintenance owners and government officials met to discuss the labour challenges facing the construction industry.
At that meeting, owners and government officials concluded that a better appreciation of the construction industry’s labour challenges is essential if governments and other stakeholders are to respond to their short-, medium- and long-term needs.
This document presents a consensus five-year rolling strategy of a cross-section of construction owners (i.e., industrial, utilities/hydro, public infrastructure) to co-operatively address the workforce challenges facing the construction and maintenance industry.
