I'm looking for research reports on the construction or milling industries in Canada/US and it's my first time using CapIQ and Factset and I'm not having much luck.

There's no pre-existing data since I'm at a boutique. Would you guys happen to have some good resources on how to find it? Or even where I should be looking on Capital IQ (I did an Advanced screening search)

I don't have any silver bananas, but I'll buy some if anyone can help. I'm not asking for any reports itself or any proprietary information, just thought CapIQ would be the best way but am struggling a bit with all the information here.

Thomson ONE has some industry reports (although generally geared towards equity investors) as well as equity research ofc

Factset has some bs research sources for free but you usually have to trade with a bank or pay directly to get their research.

Sometimes you can find the first page or just the investment thesis of a research report from firms like KBW, JMP Securities, etc... I don't think I've ever seen a full length report on Factset or CapIQ (but then again, I never really tried to look). Sometimes our institutional sales people or clients will forward some competitor's research that might be interesting...Other than that I only have access to my own firm's reports, so I assume that unless you're a client and get research directly, you won't find full reports on CapIQ/Factset.
