    Sault Ste. Marie needs more plumbers, pipefitters and steamfitters - By ELAINE DELLA-MATTIA, Daily Commercial News, Canada
    There is a “drastic” shortage of plumbers, pipefitters and steamfitters in Sault Ste. Marie to fill the need of two major construction projects in the Northern Ontario city.

    Sault Ste. Marie Construction Association manager Rick Thomas said that the construction of the new Sault Area Hospital project is the largest plumbing project underway in the area and the shortage anticipated two years ago has exceeded predictions.

    “We anticipated a shortage but we didn’t think it would be this significant,” Thomas said.

    Between 30 and 50 registered, licensed plumbers, pipefitters and steamfitters are needed to fill the void and keep projects running on time and on budget.

    No more apprentices are needed on the job sites, he said.
