Career & Postgraduate Study Opportunities


Construction is the engine that drives the GTA and Ontario economies. In 2019, the industry generated over 360,000 on-site and off-site jobs, paid more than $22 billion in wages and created almost $43 billion in Ontario’s built environment. Nationally, the construction industry employs one out of every 14 working Canadians. However, there remains a shortage of educated and highly skilled workers in the sector.

With an expanding regional transit network stimulating redevelopment and growth and population and demographic shifts at the heart of a demand surge for housing, the GTA has the largest construction activity of any region in Canada. In fact, the City of Toronto continues to report the highest number of construction cranes of any city in North America.

Despite the recent challenges, the construction sector in Ontario remains strong, led by significant government investment and continued demand for housing.

The School of Construction Management Program Advisory Committee (PAC) has an engaged committee with a good and broad representation of the industry. Members contribute their ideas and opinions with respect to curriculum changes, industry trends, awards and scholarships, competitions, special events, work experience and mentoring for students.

Educational Pathways

Pathways to the Honours Bachelor of Technology (Construction Management) degree program are also available after completing the three-year Construction Engineering Technology program. Minimum of 3.0 GPA required.
