Phase 1: Survey

Measuring the benefits of social procurement in the Canadian construction industry

Participate in this first-ever Canadian study to research the construction industry’s use of different labour suppliers. The $170+ billion Canadian construction industry employs some 1.4 million people across Canada, but on the horizon is an increasing labour shortage of tens of thousands of workers.

Many workers face barriers accessing these positions, and social procurement in construction tendering can bridge construction sites to the host community’s own goals. Questions remain unanswered about the cost of social procurement, and so researchers with Simon Fraser University Urban Studies invite you to share your knowledge.
