VIDEO: Reed Construction Data VP and GM Mark Casaletto at the 94th annual CCA conference on Canada's economic outlook
Both Reed Construction Data VP and GM Mark Casaletto and Peter Hall, the VP and chief economist for Export Development Canada were on hand at the 94th annual Canadian Construction Association conference in Savannah, Georgia to deliver a comprehensive view of the immediate prospects for the Canadian and global economy with a focus on the construction industry.
Casaletto highlighted several trends, including the rise of construction employment while manufacturing employment declines, and the fact that this construction boom is being pushed forward by trade given the enormous demand for Canadian resources by emerging economies across the world.
But for every remote mine or oilsands project, there’s also a dire need for a small town to support the workers who will both build and staff these facilities, Casaletto said.
