On behalf of BuildForce Canada, the national construction sector council, SRDC conducted an evaluation of the Labour Market Information (LMI) products that currently support the construction sector. The cornerstone of their LMI program is a demand and supply model, which is used to provide forecasts of both construction investment and labour market demand for skilled trades. This study explores how employers, tradespeople, and other stakeholders such as training institutions currently access, utilize, and value BuildForce Canada’s products. The design included a series of key informant interviews with stakeholders and a regional survey of users of construction sector LMI.
