Between industry growth and retirements, a considerable labour gap is expected create a competitive recruiting environment throughout the 2020s

Annex Business Media, publisher of numerous construction sector business magazines, including On-Site, has launched an industry-specific job portal designed to make both recruiting and job searching more focused and efficient. The portal — www.ConstructionJobsite.ca — is powered by seven of Canada’s leading construction media brands, including:

  • On-Site
  • Rock to Road
  • Crane & Hoist Canada
  • Canadian Contractor
  • Electrical Business
  • HPAC
  • Canadian Consulting Engineer

Together, these omni-channel brands reach 468,000 industry professionals, a reach that is amplified by 76,000 CASL-compliant emails, 150,000 monthly qualified unique site visitors, social media through Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram, and audience extension as required.

“As we exit the COVID pandemic, the need for qualified talent in this sector will be greater than ever,” Annex COO Scott Jamieson, said in a release. “A recent BuildForce study forecasts the sector will need to recruit 309,000 workers to replace retirees between now and the end of the decade. Traditional, general-purpose job boards will not be sufficient for recruiting the right talent at that scale — we believe a vertical, focused approach will be more efficient and cost effective. Our multi-platform reach creates the perfect opportunity to launch, and then to grow among an audience of new industry entries.”

Annex has partnered with recruiting specialists ConstructionGigs to ensure a simple user experience and client success.


“Partnering with Annex and its construction media brands is an exciting opportunity,” Duncan Brown, CEO of ConstructionGigs, said in a release. “We bring the platform and knowledge of the recruiting space and what we need to do to be successful matchmakers; they deliver a massive audience to start, and experience in building new audiences.”

Single job postings start at $199, while packs of five offer postings for as low as $160 each. A limited time discount of 20 per cent on the above prices is available until May 15 by using the code CJS20.
