Aecon Logo

Ask any Aecon employee and they will say the work we do from coast to coast can easily be summarized as challenging, dynamic, fast-paced and exciting. Building the country’s large, complex projects, whether it’s in support of resource development, power generation, transportation networks or the enhancement of our social, manufacturing and urban infrastructure, demands dynamic, high-calibre people. And we say with pride that we have that at Aecon. Our goal is to hire the most talented, dedicated, qualified people in the business, offer them unique opportunities to grow and develop a long-term career with the Aecon family, and do so in an environment that protects our people, our partners and our environment.

The Best People
We provide our employees with one of the leading human resources teams in the industry. Our team taps into the best schools across Canada and abroad in search of leading candidates to fill a wide range of career-developing roles, from on-site project team positions to legal, finance, IT and marketing support services. Led by the guiding principles of our Aecon core values and policies, we hire for attitude, skill, potential and diversity.

We’re firmly committed to ensuring a positive and professional working environment in which all people are treated with dignity and respect. We support a fair and consistent approach to filling employment openings that is reflective of and promotes equal opportunity and culture diversity across the entire company.

We hire, train, promote and compensate employees based on their ability to do the job, as well as their dependability and potential for advancement, without regard to disability, race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, gender, sexual orientation, age, record of offences for which a pardon has been granted, marital status, family status or same-sex partnership status.

We’re proud of Aecon’s in-house Legal Group for consistently being recognized as one of the best in the industry. Our team was recently chosen by Canadian Lawyer InHouse Carswell Media, a Thomson Reuters business, as a winner of its Innovatio Award in the category of Diversity, Small Departments, in recognition of the team’s “impressive diversity initiatives.”

Women in Leadership
Gender diversity at Aecon is at the forefront of our foundational thinking. We remain committed to appointing women to leadership positions across our business and seek out opportunities to hire and promote at all operational levels. Women currently fill leadership roles on our Board of Directors and Aecon’s Executive Committee, and women provide operational expertise in several senior management positions.

Aecon employs numerous women throughout the business in operational, engineering and construction roles. As a construction and infrastructure development company, we’re extremely proud of the great strides made in recent years toward helping women attain and fully realize their career goals at Aecon by making diversity and inclusion strategic priorities.

Respect in the Workplace
We provide a safe and healthy workplace and will take all precautions to protect employees, subcontractors, visitors and the public from workplace violence and harassment. All individuals are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with a safe, non-threatening work environment, free of violence and harassment.
