The presentation will provide an economic outlook, focusing on:

  • The overall economy as it relates to construction
  • Construction specific inflation such as rising input costs for steel, wood, aluminum and cement
  • Discussion regarding supply chain issues related to construction
  • Rising labour costs in the construction industry such as upcoming union contracts in Ontario
  • Shortage of labour or trades
  • Low interest in entering the construction field thus leaving good jobs unfilled
  • The impending interest rate increase
