Construction labour requirements 2007 to 2015
This report brings together the detail found in the regional reports. The Ontario labour market supply and demand is forecast to be fairly balanced.
However, for those who are mobile, the following lists occupations that will be in demand across other parts of the country.
Conditions in industrial and engineering construction
Analysis of the current construction environment highlights a critical situation in engineering and industrial building from 2007 to 2010. Provincial LMI Committees have provided project lists that detail the extent of the current boom in this work.The CSC LMI model identifies employment requirements in the following key trades:
- Construction millwrights
- Crane operators
- Heavy equipment operators
- Heavy equipment mechanics
- Steam, pipe and sprinkler fitters
These trades are specialized in engineering and industrial building, and employment is driven by this activity. Other key trades, including electricians, plumbers, sheet metal workers and carpenters are also engaged in the process, but their broad employment in other sectors partly conceals the impacts of the big projects.Workers with specific trade specialties for these latter groups (e.g. industrial electricians, industrial scaffolding for carpenters) will experience market conditions similar to the trades listed.
