Ontario Fair(2 of 3 stars)

For the 2016-2018 period, the employment outlook is expected to be fair for Steamfitters, pipefitters and sprinkler system installers (NOC 7252) in Ontario.

Employment has been relatively stable in this occupational group in Ontario over the last few years and is expected to increase during the forecast period. These workers are employed in a variety of sectors, but mainly by plumbing, heating and air-conditioning contractors in the construction industry.

Steamfitters and pipefitters working with these contractors usually service complex piping systems in industrial settings. Among the industries served, a fair amount of opportunities are expected for the maintenance and repair of systems in manufacturing plants given that Ontario is a hub for various types of these activities. More so, expansions are occurring in manufacturing in different parts of the province, for example with upgrades and investments in new plants including in the large automotive and food production clusters, further supporting employment creation. The manufacturing sector directly employs the second highest share of these workers in Ontario.

The utility sector is another main market served by individuals in this group. Large-scale energy projects are underway and planned, including the refurbishment of reactors at nuclear generating facilities. These developments will be strong drivers of demand for steamfitters and pipefitters during and beyond the forecast period.

Changes to Ontario's fire safety regulations will also be a factor boosting employment specifically for sprinkler system installers. The province is phasing in the enforcement for the retrofit and installation of automatic sprinkler systems in facilities such as long-term care homes. Also, fairly recent requirements for these systems in high-rise residential buildings will add favourable demand for these installers, especially given the high stock of high-rise apartments and the significant number of these new developments in many areas of the province.

Steamfitters, pipefitters and sprinkler and fire protection installers, are skilled trades in Ontario. While steamfitters and pipefitters are already compulsory trades, certification will become mandatory for sprinkler and fire protection installers in 2017.

There is some seasonality associated with this occupational group, with a slowdown in work opportunities in the winter months.

Employers usually require tradespersons with over three years of experience working in a particular setting and with strong skills using different hand tools. Workers often travel to different work sites, therefore having a valid driver's licence is another common requirement.
