Summary of project
Client is looking into creating a new service line that helps close the construction labor gap in Canada (specifically Ontario, Alberta, and/or BC) by helping skilled immigrants enter the country, find work, and get culturally and professionally acclimated/ trained. The client has done a lot of the upfront strategy work but are looking for someone with a background in that space to problem solve, test ideas, and facilitate connections in the space. Rather than a specific deliverable, this is more about tracking hours/ being flexible with what is needed to support the new business line.
Profile of consultant
Someone with experience/ knowledge specifically in the Canadian construction industry (can be residential or commercial, ideally ON, AB, and/or BC). Ideally, this person also has connections with others in the construction industry and would be willing to help with introductions to help kick off initial business development. Having go-to-market experience on top of Canadian construction knowledge/ connection is helpful but not required. Note: The client is not interested in construction industry experience from the US or other countries since there are specific Canadian nuances they're focused on figuring out.
1-5 hours a week for the foreseeable future (could be multiple months depending on fit)
Remote but client is Toronto-based
Professional Fee range
No budget was given but the client is aware that this is a top-tier community
