The employment outlook will be fair for Plumbers (NOC 7251) in the Toronto region for the 2018-2020 period.

The following factors contributed to this outlook:

  • Employment growth will lead to a moderate number of new positions.
  • Several positions will become available due to retirements.
  • Due to the seasonal nature of this occupation, employment opportunities tend to be more favourable during the summer months.

Compared to other regions, plumbers should have better job prospects in the Toronto area because of the large number of residential, commercial, and public infrastructure developments. Upgrades to the local water system such as investments in the Ashbridges Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Humber Wastewater Treatment Plant, and the Hanlan and Herridge Pumping Stations, may help job prospects for plumbers. Construction also started on the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital, an expansion of the University of Toronto’s Robarts Library, on CIBC Square, as well as on numerous transit projects across the Greater Toronto Area. This will create additional opportunities for plumbers to work on these facilities and transit stations. Despite some changes to the housing market, several residential projects are in progress throughout the region to support population growth, including multiple condominiums. These developments will sustain some work for plumbers to install and maintain pipes and fixtures.
