Large Construction Boom Predicted

A new study is predicting big things for the construction industry in northwestern Ontario.

Madge Richardson with the North Superior Workforce Planning Board says a large number of construction projects will result in the need for a lot of workers.

At least $7-billion dollars worth of work is expected over the next five years.

Richardson says an estimated 12-hundred new jobs will be created as a result of projects in the mining, forestry and road building sectors
