Canadian Contractor

NextLevel allows contractors in Canada to compare their businesses' numbers to those of their peers

Canadian Contractor in partnership with Renovantage has begun a new chapter in helping Canadian renovators and custom homebuilders grow their businesses. NextLevel is a peer group program where contractors from non-competing markets have the opportunity to discuss the problems,  challenges and successes they experience in their businesses. And help each other by sharing ideas, solutions and encouragement.

As the first peer group initiative for contractors in Canada, publisher Rob Koci expects NextLevel to be the most important catalyst in individual company growth for this industry.

“I’ve been in the industry for 40 years now,” Koci says. “With the growth of regulatory oversight in every province, increased competition and a far more educated populace where renovations are concerned, our readers need more than the stories published in Canadian Contractor and our E-News to keep them profitable, never mind growing.”


With Mike Draper, president of Renovantage (and Canadian Contractor‘s resident “contractor coach”) on board, NextLevel offers contractors years of coaching experience plus administration helps that include P&L templates and comparisons with others in the group, ready-to-use estimating processes and everything from job descriptions to systems for typical contractor work flows. And much more.

“At the end of the day, we want to help contractors live better and more successful lives,” says Draper. “We think the best way to do that is to bring them together in a way that they can openly share ideas.”

    As a faculty member and RSE Carpenter at Nova Scotia Community College, I’m responsible for delivery of a course material designed to introduce students in a 2 year pre-apprenticeship carpentry program the basics of estimating for residential and light commercial construction. Topics covered in the Trade Communication course reinforce principals taught in the core carpentry program including, methods to obtain work, tendering process, estimating process, building permits, project documentation-daily site reports-time reports and change orders, writing proposals, scheduling work, legal-when the customer refuses to pay, and NS Small Claims Court. Thanks to the CONTRACTOR for initiating this discussion and providing the support for new and practicing contractors to learn and improve their business and customer service practices. I look forward to reading and sharing the material with students and future contractors in my classes at NSCC.
