Survey to provide snapshot of industry salary levels
The Ontario General Contractors Association is funding a comprehensive survey of salaries in the industry.
“This will be one of the most advanced and scientifically researched pieces of data ever attempted in our industry,” said Clive Thurston, OGCA president. “We will be able to provide a breakdown on salaries by regions, size of projects and other criteria.”
A private consultant will contact nearly 1,500 general contracting firms across the province, gathering data on 22 different job descriptions. The results should be ready by May.
Thurston said findings will only be made available to participating firms. Companies will be charged “a reasonable fee” for taking part in the survey and in return receive full data disclosure.
“We think this should be an extremely worthwhile tool for companies, both large and small,” Thurston said. “It should aid with recruitment and help contractors remain competitive with other contractors.”
