Strengthening Canada’s

Construction Workforce

 

Canada is experiencing an acute shortage of skilled labour in the construction industry. The construction monopolies advocated for by the Building Trades Council (BTC), moreover, serve only to exacerbate this shortage.

The immediate victim of the skills shortage is productivity. Construction projects cost more and take longer to complete than necessary. Or they are not started at all.

The consequence is that local, provincial and national economies are not growing as quickly as they should. Canadians find themselves out of work, or underemployed, when there is work that needs to be done.

Employing more than 20,000 skilled construction workers across Canada, PCA member companies stand ready to provide relief through our numbers, networks and expertise.

By expanding Canada’s construction workforce and strengthening its ability to work together, we will enhance the productivity of our industry and our economy.
