Merit provides industry-leading benefits, quality education, and unwavering advocacy to meet the needs of our members.
Enhance your employees’ well-being with portable benefits tailored exclusively for the open-shop construction industry and its partners.
Sharpen your skills and stay competitive at Merit College of Construction. High-quality education and scholarships that encourage a skilled, competitive and robust construction workforce.
As provincial policies continue to shift, we stand firm in our mission to elevate Canada’s open shop construction industry. Our mission is to develop a regulatory and business environment that not only supports open shop principles, but a spirit of open and transparency in the construction industry as well.
Our members are busy building hospitals, schools and homes – they don’t have time to attend all the meetings, read long documents and speak to legislators. Merit has decades of government relations experience. We have representation on several committees (Apprenticeship and Industry Training, BuildForce, etc.). Our knowledgeable staff examine policies and legislation to highlight important information to pass along to members and their employees.
