AbstractAlmost ten years ago the Economic Council of Canada examined the problem of fluctuating levels of construction work performed in the country and made recommendations designed to bring more stability in construction. Few of these recommendations were followed. This paper examines the problem of construction instability in Canada in recent years. Effects of cancellation or postponement of megaprojects in the energy field on construction activity are analyzed. The impact of various government interventions to counteract the recent downturn in building activity is discussed. Some general conclusions are drawn.
