3rd Annual Canada Wide BIM Survey!

The 3rd annual Canada wide BIM survey is out now!

The data collected will be used to determine strategic planning as a response to regional needs and to many organizations to generate national initiatives.  The results of the survey will be formulated into a report for release in early 2020.

We are asking you to help support this initiative which will help benchmark Canada compared to other countries as well as its own progress overtime. It is a 10-15 minute survey, primarily multiple choice with the opportunity to provide general feedback or volunteer to be interviewed.  This feedback is important to the further improvement and implementation of BIM in Canada.
