The research methodology also included a comprehensive analysis of statistical and labor market information (LMI) from publicly available sources including Statistics Canada, BC Statistics, the Construction Sector Council, and others.

Secondary research and statistical analyses for this study were backed up by extensive quantitative and qualitative research activities that included:

  • Developing a web-based industry survey with responses from more than 430 business owners, homebuilders, general contractors, sub-trades, and apprentices in the residential construction sector from across the province.
  • Conducting more than two dozen one-on-one interviews with industry associations and organizations, training providers, the Industry Training Authority (ITA), and the owners of residential contracting and specialty trades companies.
  • Hosting a series of four regional focus groups that brought together homebuilders and developers, specialty trade contractors, deans and instructors from several post-secondary institutions, and representatives from various industry associations and organizations to discuss industry trends.

Challenges and opportunities with respect to training and continuous learning; and alternative delivery models relevant to residential construction training. (BC Residential Construction Industry Profile Study 2013 )
