Sortir l'industrie de l'eau chaude

Getting the construction industry out of hot water

We saw it in La Presse early last week: Quebec’s construction industry is facing a series of complex challenges.
The conclusion is clear: to ensure the industry’s efficiency in all its fields and meet its growing needs, structural reforms and adjustments must be made.

Challenges in nearly every field:

  • In infrastructures: there’s a shortage of workers to carry out projects worth over $150 billion
  • In healthcare: delays in the construction of homes for the elderly are exacerbating the challenges posed by an aging population.
  • In education: the rapid deterioration of schools in education leads to a pressing need for repairs, with the majority in poor condition
  • In energy: major challenges in recruiting workers are preventing us from meeting Hydro-Québec’s projected energy needs
  • In transportation: problems with road maintenance and public transport persist, despite new projects under consideration
  • In housing: the housing shortage and its consequences on supply and demand are accentuated by a record increase in immigration

Possible solutions:

  • Increase the versatility and expertise of the workforce
  • Improve accessibility, mobility and equity among workers
  • Ensure compliance with quality, health and safety standards

and 100% adapted to today's reality in Quebec:
