Vancouver, BC, March 9, 2023 – Significant demand for work in the trade contracting sector is expected to continue throughout 2023 as construction projects for residential, commercial, institutional and major infrastructure continue to emerge across the province.
Coinciding with this demand is the growing need for skilled, qualified trade contracting professionals across the civil, electrical and mechanical sectors. Roles currently in high demand include foremen, project coordinators, project managers, estimators, superintendents and general skilled trades workers.
With the race for talent continuing across the industry in BC, future-focused recruitment and retention efforts have never been more important for employers.
