Construction is one of Canada’s largest sectors
Construction has become a cornerstone of the Canadian economy. The sector employs 1.5 million Canadians or approximately 7.5 per cent of Canada’s total workforce. Annually, construction is responsible for nearly $141 billion in economic activity or 7.2 per cent of Canada’s overall Gross Domestic Product. In the decade ahead, the Canadian construction market is expected to become one of the top 10 largest in the world, driven primarily by global demand for natural resources and the urgent need to modernize Canada’s aging national infrastructure.
