Independent Contractors in the Construction Industry in Canada


A student would like to find information on independent contractors in the construction industry in Canada. The best I've been able to come up with is using the LFS to calculate a figure for the number of people who declared themselves to be self-employed and working as contractors or supervisors in the construction industry. Does this sound reasonable?
Is there a better way to find what this student needs? The sticking point is the need for independent contractors, I think.


The Labour Divison suggested using the National Household Survey. "Data will be more reliable with NHS. Also, it looks like it can be done by a special table with NHS."
