As the largest publicly traded construction and infrastructure development company in Canada, Aecon has been building things that matter for more than a century. Aecon and its predecessor companies have helped build many of Canada's most famous infrastructure landmarks from the CN Tower and the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Calgary Olympic Oval and the Halifax Shipyards. Perhaps even more importantly, we've also helped build hundreds of things that aren't so famous; like of factories, roads, sewers, theatres, book stores, power plants, paint shops, arts centres, offices, hotels and gas distribution networks that help many Canadians live their lives everyday.
