Janitorial Services in Canada
The Janitorial Services industry in Canada is expected to experience growth over the five years to 2019. Inelastic demand for industry services ensured that year-over-year fluctuations in demand were low. Demand from commercial real estate, particularly in major cities such as Toronto and Vancouver, as well as in resource-rich Western cities such as Edmonton, AB, and Calgary, AB, has been the primary source of demand for janitorial services. This growth has broadened operators' potential customer base and increased the floor space available for cleaning. The Canadian economy experienced significant headwinds in 2016, as the collapse of the world price of crude oil and other commodities slowed commercial development across Canada, especially in western provinces such as Alberta. This, in turn, is expected to depress demand for nonresidential janitorial services, as lower investment in building construction, repair and remodelling diminishes the need for upkeep services such as cleaning. Over the five years to 2024, new business growth and a projected rise in the value of nonresidential construction are expected to broaden operators' potential customer base and increase the floor space available for cleaning.
