*NOTE* The analysis outlined in these labour market studies was based on information and assumptions developed prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. The impact of public health and industry responses to the outbreak and any resulting economic impacts have not been factored into the 2020-2029 analysis. BuildForce Canada continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on labour markets.
For an update, please see the mid-year investment report, Construction and Maintenance: Looking Beyond COVID-19, which summarizes some of the most immediate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the construction industry and provides a preliminary province-by-province outlook on construction demand for the immediate 2020-2022 period.
Every year, BuildForce Canada generates Construction and Maintenance Looking Forward highlights reports for each province and for Canada’s territories. These reports help decision makers anticipate labour force requirements and identify the trades and occupations the industry is most likely to need across a 10-year forecast scenario.
