Graduates may find employment as an apprentice general carpenter, typically specializing in single-family, townhome, and condominium building and remodelling.
Based on a 2017-2019 employment outlook, the Canadian government’s Department of Employment and Social Development (EDSC) estimates that employment gains in the construction sector will be strong in the Greater Toronto Area due to labour demands resulting from expansions and retirements.
In the next ten years, Build Force Canada estimates that those retiring from the sector will create the largest demand for new skilled carpenters, construction trades helpers and labourers, and contractors and supervisors. The significant loss of skilled labour, combined with the need to prepare the next generation of supervisors and managers, and the time required for new entrants to acquire new skills and experience are the dominant challenges that Ontario, and the rest of Canada, will face between up until 2025.
