  • The sector locally is comprised of small businesses. 73.1% of businesses operating in the Construction sector employ four people or less.
  • Employment Outlook for Construction Managers in the Ottawa Economic Region is good. Employment growth in this field is influenced by the level of construction activity from both private and public sector investments. Strong growth in the non-residential construction sector is expected to support the demand for these professionals. Large scale investments in the utilities industry and for public transit systems provincially should maintain the need for construction managers. While developments in the residential construction sector persist, a slowdown or rebalancing in the housing market could temper the demand for workers. This occupation has a slightly older age profile so retirements should lead to new opportunities.
  • The profession is becoming more complex due to changing standards and technologies. Workers must keep abreast of new construction practices and become familiar with green or sustainable building techniques. Those who possess a university degree in a construction-related field, or who have supervisory or project management skills, may have greater employment opportunities. Also, job prospects may be better for workers who are familiar with safety protocols such as the Occupational Health and Safety Act or the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS). Construction managers may be required to travel to various sites so employers may prefer individuals with a valid driver’s licence. Also, these professionals may have to relocate for major projects.
