It’s been a year since the collapse of the Global Financial Crisis and we’ve already begun to see the effects of it on the construction sector.
Since then, the construction construction industry in Canada has been undergoing a massive transformation and the job losses are starting to show up in our census data.
But for now, it’s all about the numbers.
So, what’s new in the construction supply sector?
Let’s dive in.
In January 2018, the Canadian Association of Professional Builders released its annual survey of the industry, which looked at the number of workers in the sector.
They found that the total number of employees in the industry has grown by about 12,500 since the last survey in February 2017.
There are now more than 4.4 million people in the Canadian construction industry.
About 20 per cent of the total workers in this sector are in the private sector, while another 2.5 per cent are in government and public sectors.
According to the survey, construction industry jobs were up almost 8 per cent in the last year.
But there are still about 2.3 million jobs in this industry.
In 2018, there were about 1.3 jobs for every 1,000 Canadians working in the public and private sectors.
This number is expected to drop to 1.1 jobs for each 1,002 people in 2019, but the job numbers are still growing.
The construction industry is growing at a healthy pace.
The survey also showed that construction jobs in 2018 were up 9.7 per cent over 2017, and were up 17.4 per cent from the previous year.
While the growth has been rapid, construction workers still have to deal with the realities of living and working in a modern world.
The Canadian construction sector is not the only industry facing a downturn.
The private sector is also facing its own downturn, and many are now looking to take advantage of these downturns to find new work.
The latest data from Statistics Canada shows that in 2018, private-sector construction workers made up 19.6 per cent, down from 20.4 percent in 2017.
The sector is now down by a whopping 11.6 percentage points from the same year, but this is expected grow over time.
The industry is also seeing more and more construction companies closing down.
The number of construction companies closed down in 2018 is up almost 40 per cent since last year, and that number is set to rise to over 55 by 2019.
As we mentioned earlier, there are more than 2.2 million construction jobs across the country.
The federal government has been encouraging employers to invest in construction to grow their economies and create jobs.
So far, the government has invested $1.7 billion in infrastructure in the past year.
It has also announced $7.5 billion in capital spending over the next decade, including $5 billion to invest $1 billion in a new high-speed rail line to replace the aging Toronto-Danforth line.
The $1,300-million High Speed Rail project is the first major investment in Canada in over 30 years.
It is expected that the project will increase the capacity of Toronto-Pearson, as well as the speed of trains on both lines.
It will also help create jobs in the area, with an estimated 250,000 construction jobs to be created in the Toronto area alone.
As construction jobs continue to increase, the private-business sector will continue to lose jobs.
The BC Construction Association estimates that in 2019 the construction trade sector lost nearly 8,000 jobs.
But it’s not just BC workers who are facing an economic downturn.
Many companies are looking for new opportunities in the trade of construction, but there are some other regions of the country that are also experiencing a similar downturn.
For example, Alberta and Saskatchewan are both experiencing a contraction in the labour force.
There is a lot of work to be done on both sides of the border to keep workers employed, but Alberta has been able to hold on to its jobs and continue to see growth in the economy.
Saskatchewan is still recovering from the Global Crisis, but that hasn’t slowed its recovery.
In the next few months, we’ll be taking a closer look at how the construction job market is evolving and how the provinces and territories are coping with this new downturn.
