Ontario’s construction industry has been on a steady rise since the early 2000’s, but replenishing a retiring workforce and meeting future demands will depend on construction’s ability to increase its share of new entrants. The retiring workforce (87,300 workers) exceeds the available youth coming into the industry and although female participation in construction has increased over the past few years, women continue to be underrepresented in Ontario’s construction industry. An aging population continues to be a source of concern for Ontario and all Canadian provinces.
Across Canada, numerous multibillion-dollar infrastructure and excavation projects are underway. At the forefront of these projects need to be a skilled set of committed heavy equipment operators. There will be increased demand for certified heavy equipment operators (Dozers, Excavators, Backhoes, and Road Graders).
That’s why there is such importance on providing high-level training to the next generation of operators. Without the foundational understanding and education that Canada Heavy Equipment College can provide, forestry, mining, civil, road building, and oil and gas sectors would face a severe lack of skilled workers.
