The construction industry is a major driver of activity in the Canadian

engineering services and construction trades such as bricklaying,
plumbing, electrical, etc. Construction in Canada is primarily focused

The publisher analyzes the Construction Industry in Canada in Michael
Porter’s Five Forces Analysis. It uses concepts developed in Industrial
Organization (IO) economics to derive five forces that determine the
competitive intensity and therefore attractiveness of a market. Porter
referred to these forces as the microenvironment, to contrast it with
the more general term macro-environment. They consist of those forces
close to a company that affect its ability to serve its customers and
make a profit. A change in any of the forces normally requires a company
to re-assess the marketplace.
