Results from the inaugural 2014 B.C. Construction Industry Survey show the challenges and opportunities for the province’s building industry.

Published by the British Columbia Construction Association and Construction Business Magazine, the survey drew on results from nearly 500 construction owners and employers, contractors, and suppliers. Some of the results include:

Nearly half the respondents reported various trades where they are having difficulty hiring for—from labour positions to supervisory roles.

“Construction employers are under increasing pressure and scrutiny,” said Manley McLachlan, BCCA president. “This honest, straightforward input from industry is invaluable. The respondents are clearly deeply invested in the sector and have expressed a sincere need to resolve issues and move forward.”
