Job Projections for Canadian Hydropower

A study released by HEC Montréal at the end of 2011 has projected that electricity generation projects already under consideration across Canada until 2030 would create 776,000 FTEs for construction firms and their suppliers, with a further 224,000 FTEs forecast to be created by increased spending by those directly or indirectly employed by the projects. The report was conducted at the request of the Canadian Hydropower Association (CHA) and conducted by a team of MBA students at the HEC Montréal. A total of 158 hydropower projects were identified across Canada, with 3 scenarios developed using Statistics Canada’s Input-Output modeling.
