Strong support: Increased government expenditure and investment will benefit the industry

While the Municipal Building Construction industry in Canada performed poorly in the years leading up to the reporting period as the government sought to cut back government spending, it has experienced steady growth over most of the reporting period in response to rising expenditure in particular on educational and healthcare facilities. Over the five years to 2018, IBISWorld projects the industry will grow. Over the five years to 2023, the industry will benefit from continued growth in government expenditure and investment. This will partly be due to the Investing in Canada plan, but provincial governments will also benefit from forecast growth in oil prices, which will lead to increased tax receipts, enabling higher spending more.
