Future construction needs versus enough skilled workers – it’s a delicate balancing act and BuildForce Canada’s role is to help industry deal with this challenge. BuildForce has resources to answer questions not only from the industry, but also from the media:

  • Where is construction activity growing?
  • Where will Canada’s future workers come from?
  • How does BuildForce encourage women, Indigenous people, youth, older Canadians and foreign-trained workers to consider careers in construction?
  • What skills will workers need, and are there programs to develop those skills?
  • How do training requirements differ between communities, provinces, territories, regions and countries around the globe?

BuildForce Canada’s labour market information (LMI) products provide information to help the construction industry formulate strategic plans and design projects.
