The province of Ontario needs construction workers
The region needs to fill thousands of workplaces.
The government of Ontario has allocated an investment of $3.7 million CAD to hire construction workers. According to current estimates, the province will need 100,000 construction workers in the next decade to carry out its plans to develop the region's infrastructure.
The investment will go to Merit Ontario, a local organization that supports contractors who hire workers. Merit Ontario should be hiring more than 2,500 professionals in the near future. Vacancies are posted on a special portal. Many of them are looking for workers in small towns in the province.
