"The Construction SHSM enables students to build a foundation of sector-focused knowledge and skills before graduating and entering apprenticeships training, college, university or an entry-level position in the workplace," Juuti explained.

"According to the Ontario Construction Secretariat, the Construction Industry is one of Ontario's largest employers. The Construction Sector Council has created a province-by-province, trade-by-trade labour market forecast for the next nine years.

"In Ontario, it is estimated that 60,000 workers will be required to replace those retiring who will take essential technical, supervisory and management skills with them."

Juuti concluded, "It is interesting that an additional 75,000 workers will also be needed to fill positions related to new construction between 2019 and 2022."
