Inclusive Diversity

Fearless to be first

Bringing together diverse perspectives encourages us to create an environment of respect, collaboration, and new ideas; EllisDon believes Inclusive Diversity not only enriches our day-to-day lives but has the power to reshape our industry, and is proud to lead the charge in making it a more inclusive space for everyone.

Inclusive Diversity means creating an environment where all our employees feel respected and safe to be themselves. No matter your age, culture, subculture, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, nationality, ethnicity, race, size, mental or physical status, veteran status, religion, language, political opinion, working-style preference, family status, education, or socioeconomic status, you belong here and will be encouraged to reach your full potential at EllisDon.

As one of the first Canadian construction services companies with a full-time Inclusive Diversity leader, we’re not afraid to champion a people-first approach by ensuring the voices of all employees are heard.

Empowered Employees

We encourage our employees to bring their passions to work and share their experiences and ideas. We listen and allow space for them to take the lead on initiatives that are meaningful to them in order to make EllisDon a place where everyone belongs. These groups focus on increasing awareness of the difficulties faced by underrepresented groups; creating new, more inclusive practices; and participating in community outreach programs.
