Canada needs a huge number of construction workers to meet the skill shortage in its construction industry. In view of skill shortage in the country, Canada is eying to invite significant number of foreign skilled workers fill the positions in the coming years.
About 300,000 new Construction workers needed in next 10 years
As per the chairman of the Board of the Canadian Construction Association, Wayne Morsky, about 300,000 new workers required for construction works in the next 10 years.
Morsky said pairing the young skilled workers with the older ones to begin a learning process is not enough. We need to take more steps to combat the upcoming challenges.
Canada Needs more foreign Skilled Workers
As per the Morsky, inviting more and more skilled immigrants is one of the key solutions of the skill shortage issue. The immigration of skilled labourers is not emphasized by the government compared to other occupations, while the need of such workers is increasing drastically.
Almost a decade back, average age of construction worker in Canada was 41 years, which means in next one decade most of the construction workers in Canada will be retiring. These figures can badly hit the economy if the steps are not taken now.
Impact on the Economy due to skill shortage in Construction Sector
At now construction sector in Canada employs more than one million people, wherein Ontario has the largest share compared to other provinces. The workers in the construction sector also engaged in the annual work of more than $150 billion. So, one can understand where the Canada is heading by overlooking this issue.
Apart from this, if the skill shortage problem is not addressed, it will hit Canada in terms of pending essential construction work as well, such as necessary repairs. It may cost Canada close to $200 billion.
A huge number of Construction Jobs will be created in coming years
As per an estimate more than 300,000 new construction jobs are likely to create in Canada in coming 7 years, however, it won’t have workforce to fill the same if skilled immigrants are not hired for the construction industry.
Let’s hope government pay attention to these estimations and statistics and soon take steps to make way for the immigrant skilled workers for the construction industry.

Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.

They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.
