Some stats about the Construction Industry:
The construction industry is huge in Canada, consistently responsible for employing more than 1.1 million adults, representing 8% of total employment in the country*. That’s a lot of general and skilled-trades people!
Welcome to JobsiteJobsite.com
…the employment website created specifically for the
Canadian residential and commercial construction industry!
With the expected impact of the aging population over the next 15 years and skilled tradespeople leaving the industry due to retirement, the need for employees in the construction industry has never been stronger!
There are many great employment websites available for prospective employees to find their next job (we’ll even list some of our favourites for you below!). However, these typically focus on all sectors and industries, most often with only a general section for all “construction” job listings.
JobsiteJobsite.com is different, focussing exclusively on jobs available within the skilled trades and construction industries, both residential and commercial, from directly on the jobsite through to administration and management positions. We have more than 20 different categories available (and growing!) to list available positions, helping you narrow in on your specific field or trade of interest.
If it’s on the jobsite or related to the jobsite, it belongs on JobsiteJobsite.com!
The value of building permits issued in 2010 across Canada was calculated at over $72 million. In residential construction, there were more than 189,000 new homes being built across the country in 2010. And in non-residential construction, the country is averaging more than $10 million dollars invested by companies per quarter on Industrial, Institutional or commercial building projects**.
In 2010, the average hourly rate of pay paid by employers in the construction industry was more than $28.00/hr. Based on an average work-week of 40 hours, that’s more than $50,000 per year!
