Construction Industry To Increase Hiring In 2013, According To Outlook

19 Jun 2013


Immigration News

With a net employment outlook of 15 per cent, employers in the Canadian construction sector are expecting a respectable hiring climate for the third quarter of 2013, according to the latest results of the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey.

The forecast is a two percentage point drop from the outlook reported during the previous quarter, but a five percentage point increase over the outlook reported during the same time last year.

“While most industries are expected to see little change over the previous quarter, employers in the transportation & public utilities and construction sectors anticipate the strongest gains, especially in Western Canada. This is due in part to continued government infrastructure spending, in accordance with Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2013,” said Byrne Luft, vice-president of operations for Manpower Canada.

Overall, Canadian employers expect a moderate hiring climate for the third quarter with employers in the transportation & public utilities sector reporting the strongest third quarter job prospects. The survey of over 1,900 Canadian employers reveals that 21 per cent of them plan to increase their payrolls in the third quarter of 2013, while six per cent anticipate cutbacks. Of those surveyed, 71 per cent of employers expect to maintain their current staffing levels and two per cent are unsure.

The net employment outlook for the mining sector is 12 per cent for the coming quarter. The manufacturing - durables and manufacturing - non-durables sectors both report a net employment outlook of five per cent.

Job seekers in Western and Atlantic Canada are likely to benefit from a steady hiring climate from July through September, while they can still expect some opportunities in Ontario and Quebec. Although some regional outlooks are experiencing slight decreases compared to the previous quarter, job seekers will likely continue to find prospects in the labour market as employers throughout Canada expect the hiring pace will be moderate through the summer.
