2017 was a year of mixed results for Canada’s construction industry.
Though it got off to a slow start—and the long-promised federal infrastructure spending remained slow out of the gate—worksites were jolted in the second half of the year as companies added tens of thousands of employees to payroll and put them to work on a range of new and previously delayed projects.
While some of the largest players in the industry saw modest revenue declines in 2017, many small- and mid-sized contractors added to their top lines over the course of the year. Your 2017 Top Contractors include 10 firms that booked more than $1 billion in revenue and 36 that posted more than $100 million.
I want to thank all the Canadian contractors that took the time out of their busy schedules to participate in this year’s report. Their valuable contributions are vital to maintaining the quality and relevance of On-Site and are the only way we’re able to stay plugged into the industry from coast to coast to coast.
From identifying new trends in innovation, to taking the industry’s temperature for the coming months, the responses help us better understand where the industry is headed and what segments will be the ones to watch in the future.
