THE ENGINEERING CONSTRUCTION SECTOR improves our quality of life.

Working in engineering construction means you help to make the world tick. You’ll provide the core infrastructure and install the essential services that keep your community – and Canada – running smoothly.

  • You’ll build the bridges, highways, roads and mass transit systems that allow people to travel safely in their everyday lives.
  • You’ll install essential services like water treatment systems that keep communities healthy, and power and communication lines that support economic growth.

Essentially, you’ll build the foundations that allow Canada and its people – your family, friends and neighbours – to enjoy a high quality of life and to prosper, in every way.

The average starting salary for careers in civil construction is $30,000 to $50,000 per year.
