Construction in Canada - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2024

Construction in Canada - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2024


Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)-related containment measures and the decline in oil and gas investments owing to low oil prices, construction output in Canada is expected to contract by 7% in 2020 and then by a further 2% in 2021, before recovering and growing at a modest annual average rate of 1.1% over the remaining part of the forecast period (2022-2024). Measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak have led to a sudden, deep contraction in economic activity and soaring levels of unemployment, which is, in turn, reducing demand for new buildings in the country. According to Statistics Canada, the total building permits dropped by almost 37.7% in April and 15.2% in May compared to the same period last year. However, with an ease in restrictions, the total building permits issued in the country grew by 5.8% year-on-year in June 2020.

The short-term outlook of the country remains highly uncertain, and will depend to a large extent on how long the social distancing - both voluntary and compulsory - prevails in the second half of 2020 and in 2021. Public authorities in Canada are currently trying to find a balance between returning their economies back to normal while making sure that citizens remain safe through social distancing measures, workforce protection controls, increased testing and contract tracing. These measures will become more or less strict depending on the rate of infection and the operating capacity of the healthcare system. In addition, low oil prices due to reduced global oil demand would also affect investments in the oil and gas segment. As a result, GlobalData expects construction activity to remain weak over the remaining part of the forecast period.

In addition, the prospects for the Canadian government to accelerate the mega project pipeline for public infrastructure works are moderate, but weakening economic activity, lower oil prices and rising fiscal issues will limit the expansion of sector in the second half of this year and in 2021. The government's planned investments in infrastructure are expected to provide some support to the industry over the forecast period. Under the Investing in Canada Plan - the country's long-term infrastructure plan unveiled in 2016 - the government plans to invest a total of CAD180 billion (US$139 billion) in key infrastructure sectors through 2028. The industry's output is also expected to be supported by improvements in business confidence over the forecast period, which will drive investment in overall infrastructure. In addition, the government's aim to improve local energy resources is expected to support investment in energy infrastructure projects, which will in turn fuel growth in the industry.
