Second Annual Canadian BIM Survey

The second Annual Canadian BIM Survey is a collaboration between researchers from the University of Toronto’s Building Tall Research Centre and the Toronto BIM Community with full endorsement by RESCONbuildingSMART Canada, and Canada BIM Council and extends from coast to coast across Canada.

The goal is to collect a comprehensive understanding of BIM application in Canada compared to other countries around the world, as well as gain insight regionally within Canada. The results of the survey will be formulated into an annual report for release in Spring 2019. The success of this survey will rely on a diverse group of respondents, not specifically BIM advocates or BIM professionals.

This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. We thank you sincerely for taking the time to complete this survey.

Access Report


The mission of Building Tall Research Centre is to cluster, highlight, and promote research related to tall buildings from multidisciplinary technical perspectives. These areas include but are not limited to building science, construction, environment, geomechanics, materials, resilience, structures, sustainability, and water resources.

From the perspective of the industry, regulatory bodies, and the community at large, the Centre provides a go-to place for designers, consultants, developers, builders, and policy-makers. Community leaders, social housing groups, condominium owners, and office workers could access the latest research on retrofitting buildings or indoor air quality in high rises.

The Centre will also provide opportunities for researchers to meet, share advances in tall building research, and foster collaboration. As such, the Centre will host an annual showcase to bring together researchers in this area of interest. At that time, graduate students, faculty, and the larger community will have the opportunity to learn more about ongoing research and research opportunities.
