Building Things that Matter

We build what matters to Canada and that matters to us.

Aecon strives to deliver projects that support our economy and society in ways that are sensitive to the communities in which we operate. We are proud to build things that matter – from the roads and transit systems to get Canadians to work every day, to the communication channels we depend on, to the energy systems that light homes and the utilities that keep them warm.
