The accompanying table lists the 10 largest construction projects starting in Canada in March 2021. The most recent trend graph is also included when starting. This looks at the 12-month moving totals for both residential and non-residential building categories in Canada. There are several reasons for the spotlight on upcoming big projects. Jobs like these have often received a fair amount of media coverage. Therefore, people in the industry are looking for when to actually start work on the job site. As showcase projects, they geographically highlight where major construction projects are progressing. Also, the total construction activity consists of several small and medium sized enterprises and a limited number of large developments. But the largest projects, by their very nature, can greatly affect overall size in dollars and square feet. In other words, the timing and scale of these projects have an exaggerated influence on market expectations.
