Ontario Fair(2 of 3 stars)

The employment outlook will be fair for Steamfitters, pipefitters and sprinkler system installers (NOC 7252) in Ontario for the 2017-2019 period.

The following factors contributed to this outlook:

  • Employment growth will lead to a moderate number of new positions.
  • A moderate number of positions will become available due to retirements.

Employment growth in this occupation has been slower over the last few years in Ontario but conditions should improve during the forecast period. The majority of steamfitters, pipefitters and sprinkler system installers work in the construction industry. Most are building equipment contractors that service plumbing, heating and air-conditioning needs.

Steamfitters and pipefitters often work in industrial and manufacturing settings to install and maintain complex piping systems that carry a variety of materials. The manufacturing industry generates a significant amount of work for these tradespersons either through contracting services or direct employment in the industry. Ontario’s manufacturing base should continue to see fair conditions in the near term. Recent announcements of new plants will create installation work in this trade, especially in southern Ontario. Manufacturers have also spent more on repairs to machinery and equipment over the last few years as companies upgrade and maintain existing facilities to support production needs. These investments will lead to opportunities for steamfitters and pipefitters to help construct and update various piping systems in manufacturing plants across the province.

The utilities industry is another key source of work in this trade. A couple of large-scale energy projects are underway in the province including the refurbishment of the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station and the construction of the Napanee Generating Station. Work will also start to refurbish the Bruce Power nuclear generating facility just outside of the forecast period. These projects will increase the demand for steamfitters and pipefitters over the next several years. In addition, greater use of renewable energy systems and heat recovery and central cooling systems may lead to opportunities in this trade.

Steamfitters and pipefitters support institutional and commercial construction, as well as mining operations. Investments in educational and healthcare facilities, and steady business activity should help sustain demand in this field. Further, large transit projects throughout the province will create opportunities in this trade to work on new transit lines and facilities. Steamfitters and pipefitters that service the mining industry may see less demand as weaker growth in the price of metals and minerals may reduce the amount of activity in the industry.

Job prospects for sprinkler system installers should be rather strong in the near term because of changes to Ontario’s fire and building code. A new regulation will require a phase-in of sprinkler systems in all long-term care homes, group homes and supportive housing, and licensed retirement homes over the next few years. Further, high-rise residential structures must include sprinkler systems and the recent policy to allow taller wood-frame buildings will increase the need for safety measures. These changes will create opportunities in this trade to retrofit and install equipment in various structures. The growing number of high-rise condominiums and apartment buildings in urban centres throughout the province will continue to sustain work in this occupation as well. Even though it is not mandatory, some developers have decided to install sprinkler systems in low-rise homes such as townhouse complexes. If this continues, it could increase the need for these tradespersons even more.

There are two compulsory skilled trades associated with this occupation in Ontario, namely, steamfitter and sprinkler and fire protection installer. Since these are compulsory trades in the province, the labour pool will consist of registered apprentices or individuals that hold trade certification in this field. Certification for sprinkler and fire protection installers became mandatory in 2017 so it is expected that the number of registered apprenticeship certificates will rise accordingly in the next few years. Meanwhile, the number of registered apprenticeship certificates has been somewhat stable for the steamfitter/pipefitter trade group in Ontario over the last decade. Further, a fair share of the certificates issued for the steamfitter/pipefitter trade group have been through the trade qualifier provision, which is based on experience. Looking ahead, the steamfitter/pipefitter trade group continues to attract a steady flow of registrations.

Employers may prefer experienced candidates that have knowledge of welding techniques, building and fire codes, and safety protocols. Job seekers may also need to be familiar with software tools such as computerized maintenance management system. Workers in this occupation often have to travel to various sites so a valid driver’s licence may be required. There is some seasonality associated with this occupational group, with fewer job opportunities in the winter months.
