News & Events BUILDING RESILIENCE: A Made in BC Human Resources Strategy for the Unionized Construction Industry
We are pleased to introduce the official report “BUILDING RESILIENCE: A Made in BC Human Resources Strategy for the Unionized Construction Industry”.
This comprehensive report is the product of a two-stage study that combined thorough research and a strategy development phase.
A Project Governance Committee comprised of representatives from the Construction Labour Relations Association, BC Building Trades, BC Infrastructure Benefits, unions, employers, post-secondary institutions, SkilledTradesBC (formerly the Industry Training Authority), and the Province of British Columbia was formed to develop a human resource strategy to address provincial labour market challenges in the unionized construction industry in BC.
In Phase 1, the Project Governance Committee engaged MNP to undertake a labour market study to identify current and emerging workforce development challenges and opportunities in the unionized construction industry in BC. In Phase 2, the Governance Committee engaged StoneCoast Group, in association with MNP, to build on the findings from Phase 1 and identify strategies to support the unionized construction industry in addressing labour market challenges arising from COVID-19.
CLR will be working with relevant partners to act on the identified strategies in areas where we believe we can have an impact and we will report on our progress through our newsletter – CLR Connector.
We are excited to share this important document with our members and a broader audience in the BC construction sector.
The CLR Team.
