Construction

The construction sector is one of Ontario’s largest employers and is the fifth largest sector in Hamilton according to Stats Canada. Construction accounted for the direct employment of close to 395,000 workers in 2005 in Ontario. According to the Hamilton Training and Advisory Board, it is estimated that by 2011 20-30% of construction workers across a variety of trades will be eligible for retirement. In Ontario, it is estimated that 56,300 workers will be needed just to sustain the construction workforce at its 2006 level. The SHSM Construction begins in grade 11.
