Data released by Statistics Canada in an early-April Labour Force Survey shows that the number of employed people fell by one million in March, with the sharpest declines taking place in Ontario and Quebec. In Ontario, some residential construction projects have been permitted to continue as an essential service, including those projects who have been granted footing or above-grade structural permits. As of April 20th, construction on residential units which will have occupancy by July 31 can resume, according to the Commission de la construction du Québec. Broccolini has new construction projects in both provinces, where the company says it is currently hiring in across multiple departments.
Once construction activity picks up again, the company says that it has expectations for growth considering its backlog of contracted projects.
“Given the diversity of services that Broccolini offers, ranging from planning to construction to property management, a number of positions are open and need to be filled in order to help meet the company’s immediate needs,” says the release.
According to data from BuzzBuzzHome, Broccolini is actively selling three projects in Quebec and two condo projects in Ontario, which includes The Slater and River & Fifth Condos. The Canadian company has also proposed a 38-storey condo tower along River Street in Toronto, and a 27-storey rental building close to Ottawa’s Parliament Hill. Broccolini’s activities span residential, commercial and industrial real estate.
