For more than a century, Aecon and our predecessor companies have helped to build many of Canada's most famous landmarks – from the CN Tower and St. Lawrence Seaway, to the Vancouver Sky Train and Halifax Shipyards. In addition to these great landmarks, we've also helped to build hundreds of factories, roads, sewers, theatres, book stores, power plants, arts centres, mine sites, offices, hotels and gas distribution networks – the smaller, but no less important projects that help to make Canada a great place to live.
Building Things that Matter
At Aecon, we work hard to be the first company people go to for building things that matter. In every department and division, our culture is firmly rooted in our core values – Safety first, Trust and Candour, a Passion for Excellence, People Focused Learning and a Results Oriented Culture.
A Safe Working Environment
At Aecon, a safe job site is a productive one. Our company is committed to providing a safe working environment for every employee and partner with whom we work. On each site we operate, this means rigorous maintenance of our equipment and zealous enforcement of stringent workplace safety standards. As a result, not only is Aecon recognized as one of the Best Employers in Canada, but we also regularly earn a safety rating of more than 98% in national audits conducted by the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association.
Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility are deeply embedded in Aecon’s corporate culture. Across all of our many business units, we believe strongly in building relationships by giving back through various community and charitable programs. Our company is also committed to protecting the environment through sustainable construction initiatives, anti-idling programs, renewable energy solutions and many other project-based environmental initiatives.
