Survey – Employers’ anticipated activity and recruiting difficulties

The number of employers in the industry anticipating that the volume of work should increase or remain stable next year has dropped slightly, to 83% from 86% last fall. This is revealed in the most recent survey conducted last May by the CCQ about anticipated activity and recruiting difficulties among employers in the construction industry. 

According to the employers surveyed, difficulty with hiring workers is again the most important obstacle to operating their company, and rising cost of construction has become a greater concern. In addition, compared to previous surveys, employers have turned somewhat less to delaying or staggering their contracts among their strategies for dealing with the labour shortage, and they must now train and hire more workers who are less experienced.
