Labour Market Outlook for Maintenance and Construction Across Canada

Bob Collins
Economist
BuildForce Canada

These are interesting times in construction and maintenance across Canada. Industry is undergoing the most dramatic demographic shift in its history with close to a quarter of the construction and maintenance workforce expected to retire over the next decade. At the same time, after more than a decade-long construction expansion, new resource development investment slows as some projects wind down and others are delayed in the shadow of lower commodity prices and changing global demands. Sustaining workforce capacity during slower periods of growth, while addressing an aging workforce may become increasingly more difficult. Interpreting labour market signals is particularly challenging under these conditions. Bob Collins of BuildForce Canada will share his insights on the next decade for the construction industry.

Speakers

Walter Pesenti
Managing Director
Berkeley Research Group LLC

What is it about?

(Registration Opens at 12:30 pm)

This workshop will cover quickly employable ways to address 10 top crafts productivity pain points (e.g., walking, waiting, delays, work definition, equipment preparation, permitting), based on STO expert advice and industry feedback received.

Additionally, the workshop will show potential ways to use tools like Lean Core Concepts and Rapid Kaizen to avoid waste and streamline STO execution. These tools drive quick-hit value by implementing “do-now” solutions through waste elimination, and they increase process speed and efficiency through employee (company and contractors) involvement.

Topics covered will include:

  • How can energy companies identify waste, reduce downtime, and lower costs during STO execution events?
  • How can STO schedules be used as communication tools, and how can meetings be made more effective and efficient?
  • What are best strategies for planning and sequencing STOs?
  • What are the most useful management tools, and how can they be used to make execution decisions?
  • How can best practices from downstream and chemicals be employed across the entire oil and gas value chain?
  • How can we combine best-in-class Equipment Maintenance Strategies, within the energy industry and across others, with the STO approach to maximize effectiveness?

Key highlights of this session:

Elimination of waste in STOs
Reduction of cycle time to execute STOs
Reduction of STOs cost
Increased margins around STOs
