Special topic for 2019: 
Meeting the future labour force needs of the construction industry

Atlantic Canada’s labour force is declining due to baby boomers retiring. This is a key issue for the construction industry as its labour force is older than most industries and workers tend to retire earlier. Underrepresented groups including Indigenous, immigrants and women can be part of the solution. However, it is not just about the number of people. Digitalization, automation and other technological advances are changing the skills required in the construction labour force. It is therefore important to ensure current and future construction workers have the skills they need. Join us for an important discussion on how the construction labour force is transforming to meet the future needs of the industry.
