Who will do the Cleanup? (Contaminated Sites Report 2007)


Courtesy of ECO Canada

To better understand Canada’s current capacity to meet this unique labour demand, ECO Canada undertook this study in early 2006. Our work was guided by a 29-member National Steering Committee from government, industry, and academia. In addition, a full-day National Forum on Contaminated Sites was held in Vancouver on March 28, 2006 to gain support and gather comments on the project from stakeholders, including some members of the National Steering Committee and additional representatives from municipalities, industry, and government.

The study’s specific objectives are as follows:

  • Provide a clearer picture of the labour demand for contaminated sites work
  • Offer recommendations for “next steps,” which may include an additional examination of the existing
    and forecasted labour supply, an analysis of training and educational gaps, and the development of
    procurement policies that reflect labour market reality and identified best practices
  • Build greater industry awareness and support for government and private sector contaminated
    sites policies

The focus of this study and the analysis provided here relate to two types of sites: federal contaminated sites and non-federal contaminated sites.
