Construction Sector is Set to Grow

Canada’s Federal Employment Minister MaryAnn Mihychuk recently met with Calgary business, municipal and economic leaders to discuss the current economic difficulties facing the province. Though she admits there is no "magic wand" that the federal government can use to undo the impact of low oil prices, which led to 40,000 jobs losses last year, that doesn’t mean Calgary’s economy can’t recover. To help the hard hit provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and British Columbia the federal government intends to move ahead with cash for infrastructure projects in the hopes of moving people from the oil sector to the construction sector.

This increased infrastructure spending is good news for construction workers, who will likely encounter more companies looking for skilled labour. With unemployment rates high, many Calgarians are wondering what they can do to get an edge over the competition.
