Highlighting the significance of the impending labor shortages in skilled trades and how these numbers resonate not just locally but globally, affecting the construction industry on an international scale in an impending global housing crisis.

BRANTFORD, November 21, 2023 –According to recent statistics shared by The Globe and Mail, approximately 700,000 skilled trades workers are expected to retire in Canada by 2028. Moreover, the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum forecasts a need for an average of 75,000 new apprentices annually over the next five years.

These numbers not only resonate across Canada but reverberate globally. Labour shortages in skilled trades have emerged as a key driver in the modular market, impacting economies across Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and various Advanced, Emerging, and Eurozone regions. In fact, it stands as the foremost barrier confronting the traditional construction industry worldwide. The WEC forum reported the construction sector as the most  impacted due to shortages by occupation.
