[fa icon="calendar"] Jan 25, 2017 11:26:40 AM / by Prepare for Canada

The Province of British Columbia in Western Canada is growing, with 82 billion dollars in construction projects already underway across the Province, with a great deal more planned in the future. This makes British Columbia a very attractive province for newcomers looking to enter the Canadian workforce.

British Columbia has over 22,000 potential employers in the construction industry, the majority employing less than ten employees. These potential employment opportunities are available in every region of British Columbia, active in home building, commercial, industrial, institutional, road building, and civil engineering projects. The average annual salary of a construction employee based in British Columbia is about $55, 600 CAD.

Based on recent estimates, the British Columbia skilled trades sectors will have 58,000 job openings in the next decade, with about 25,400 construction jobs to go unfilled due to a lack of skilled labour.
