Infrastructure & Engineering

Infrastructure & Engineering

Building a better world, one project at a time.

Infrastructure and engineering companies provide support for the exploration, extraction, and development of Canada’s bountiful natural resources.

The industry is involved in non-residential construction activities, such as construction of institutional and commercial structures, heavy industrial facilities and civil engineering projects.

Canada’s largest construction company, PCL Construction, had revenues of $5.6 billion in 2012.


The Brains

Canada’s steady economic growth, stable political atmosphere and well-educated and skilled labour force contribute to a positive business and trade environment for foreign companies seeking to do business in Canada.

Canadian research institutions collaborate closely with industry to develop green, environmentally friendly products for the construction industry.


The Bottom Line

Activity in the infrastructure and engineering industry depends on economic growth, and Canada’s economy continues to outperform those of most other industrialized countries. Between 2008 and 2011, Canada led the G-7 in terms of real GDP growth, and is expected to be among the top G-7 performers through 2016.

The Canadian infrastructure and engineering industry benefits from government support of the industry and access to public and private funding. Examples of government initiatives and funding programs include the Building Canada Fund and the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund.
