Fraud Warning: It has come to our attention that various international organizations or individuals have been offering false employment opportunities at Aecon Group Inc. These individuals will offer to fast track Canadian working visa applications in exchange for a payment. Such offers are fraudulent and intended to steal from the victims.

Aecon Group Inc. employment policies and processes in Canada involve personal interviews, and candidates who seek employment with us are never required to pay us any sum of money. To do so would be contrary to our business conduct guidelines and ethical practices. We take this matter extremely seriously and are working with the appropriate legal authorities to shut down such fraudulent schemes. Read more here

Aecon recognizes that there are strong, interdependent links between economic, environmental and social sustainability. At Aecon, our Indigenous Engagement program is an excellent example of how we have lived up to the commitment of supporting communities where we work. The Aecon Indigenous Engagement program supports the development and involvement of qualified Indigenous organizations and communities in our projects, including implementing projects of mutual interest and benefit, direct hire of local Indigenous Peoples, as well as the sharing of commercial benefits with these communities.

Aecon, in partnership with the Cree community in Oujé-Bougoumou, Quebec, built the Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute. This museum and cultural institute brings together all the cultural programs of the region. The Institute also serves as an archive, library and teaching centre, which will ensure the preservation and transfer of knowledge to future generations. The Institute empowers the Cree to have control over their culture, community and history.

In addition, Aecon made a $250,000 contribution to the Aanischaaukamikw Foundation to help support the community’s continued growth and cultural preservation initiatives. Cultural preservation through the Cree Cultural Institute experience enriches the quality of life for community members. The building is also LEED certified. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a global sustainable “green” building standard that rates building design, construction and maintenance based on energy sufficiency end environmental benefits. Aecon is increasingly incorporating the LEED standard into its core business. The Institute was also built to preserve the environment, being built from locally sourced products and materials and incorporating natural elements such as ambient sunlight and geothermal energy.
