Construction in Canada - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (Q1 2021)
Summary Following a decline of 3.4% in 2020, Canada’s construction industry is now forecast to grow by 0.6% in 2021, up from the previous forecast of -2% in the Q4 2020 update, as activity in the housing market has been stronger than expected. Over the remainder of the forecast period, the industry is set to expand by 2.8%, supported by the government’s efforts to accelerate its long-term infrastructure plan (the “Investing in Canada Plan”) and revive the economy. However, concerns over the slow pace of vaccine rollout and the spread of more transmissible variants of the virus pose major risks to the industry’s outlook as they could further delay the recovery of the hardest-hit sectors, such as leisure and hospitality.
Canada’s construction industry has been recovering faster than previously anticipated in recent months, bolstered by increasing investment in residential building construction.The country’s housing market has been benefiting from record low interest rates, pent-up demand for new homes and the significant shift in remote work, even though the economy is still emerging from the steepest economic downturn since the Great Depression.
According to Statistics Canada, activity in the residential construction market was 7% above its pre-pandemic levels in December 2020; this compared to lower performance in other segments, including repair construction (+5.1%), non-residential buildings (-11.2) and engineering and other construction activities (-12.8%).
While Canada’s economy is expected to grow robustly this year, thanks to the government’s ongoing provisions of large fiscal and monetary stimulus (which should continue to support domestic demand) and the rollout of vaccines (which has raised hopes that hard-hit sectors such as leisure and hospitality, offices and recreational buildings can recover quicker than expected), new COVID-19 variants that are spreading rapidly in provinces like Ontario pose an additional threat and may lead to a third wave and renewed or extended lockdown and travel restrictions across the country. If this comes to pass, this could slow both investment and the recovery of the construction industry in the first half of this year.
