Initiatives

It’s impossible to imagine a world without construction. Skilled trades people are the professionals who build and maintain the infrastructure in which we live – our homes, roads, educational institutions, manufacturing and production facilities – just to name a few. In 2006, the construction industry in Nova Scotia employed 27,300 people and contributed $1,686.6 million to the province’s gross domestic product (GDP).

To support the work of these professionals, the Nova Scotia Construction Sector Council – Industrial-Commercial-Institutional endeavours to engage in and support initiatives that address industry-related human resource issues. Additionally, the Council strives to establish and maintain linkages and partnerships with a variety of industry stakeholders, educators, and government departments (federal, provincial, and municipal) to facilitate effective communication of these initiatives within the construction community.
