Top 10 Largest Construction Project Starts in Canada and Trend Graph – July 2022

The accompanying table records the 10 largest construction projects starting in Canada in July 2022. Also included is the latest trend chart for starts. This looks at the 12-month moving totals of the civil and non-residential building categories in Canada.

There are several reasons to highlight upcoming major projects. Such jobs have often received a fair amount of media coverage. Therefore, people in the industry are on the lookout for when work will begin on the job site. And, as showcase projects, they highlight geographically where major construction projects are proceeding.

Also, total construction activity consists of many small and medium-sized projects and a limited number of large developments. But larger projects, simply by their nature, can dramatically affect total dollar volumes and square footage. In other words, the timing and size of these projects have an exaggerated impact on market forecasts.
