Data from the 2010 National Construction Industry Wage Rate Survey are now available.

The 2010 National Construction Industry Wage Rate Survey covered establishments in the construction industry for the province of British Columbia, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. For British Columbia, establishments with fewer than six employees (based on Statistics Canada's Business Register) are excluded. In the case of Northwest Territories and Nunavut, all establishments are included regardless of the number of employees.

The establishments were asked to provide wage rates for employees working full time in selected occupations and to indicate whether the workers were unionized. Data were collected for work on institutional or commercial construction sites only.

Note: This survey, conducted on behalf of the Labour Branch of Human Resources and Social Development Canada, helps establish wage schedules for workers on federal construction projects. It is conducted region by region on a rotating basis. It excludes Quebec, Manitoba and Yukon, where wage rates are established by the provincial or territorial government.

Definitions, data sources and methods: survey number 2935.
