BC Construction Industry Surveys
2016 BC Construction Industry Surveys - Trades Wages & Salaries
The 2016 BC Construction Industry Survey focuses on Trades Wages & Salaries. BCCA, CLR, PCA, and Construction Business Magazine teamed up on behalf of the construction sector. We surveyed our combined membership and subscriber base to get the facts on trades wages and salaries - and received an impressive 900 respondents, all of them BC construction employers or skilled workers. The big picture results are included in the Survey Report.
"With the changes in global oil prices, Alberta's workforce is shifting westward, which is good news for BC's shortages. But don't be complacent: we're still facing too many retirements to keep our skilled labour pool at appropriate levels."
2015 BC Construction Industry Survey
The 2015 BC Construction Industry Survey includes strong opinions on investment, competition, and engaging youth and training apprentices - a necessary venture to ensure British Columbians are building BC.
"Apprentices are the future of our industry. They start on the tools, but they become our company presidents. The career potential is phenomenal, if only more of our young people could see it."
As we watch investments change and productivity become more and more difficult, we also see a focus on using data and metrics to stay ahead and set BC to a higher standard, together.
As the world moves forward with a new emphasis on the numbers, make sure those numbers include you.
2014 BC Construction Industry Survey
Reflecting current opinions of professionals in the BC construction sector, the data and commentary provided in this survey covers many of the challenges and opportunities for BC construction businesses, including recruitment and retention issues, sustainability, unique resource and infrastructure opportunities, competition and payment issues, and BC businesses' plans for the future.
"Opportunity is there if you can see it, but no one is going to just give it to you."
This survey is a resource to you as you work to embrace those opportunities.
