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.
Merit understands that keeping up with legislated requirements and industry best practices can be both overwhelming and time-consuming.
With changes to Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) and Employment Standards legislation, new rules and challenges for Canada’s open shop construction industry are taking place. That’s where we can help.
As part of our commitment to assisting Canada’s construction workforce, we have two industry professionals available to answer your questions and offer the support you need. Use this free service to get an outside perspective and be connected to the right resources—another benefit of being a Merit member.
Our advisors are here to help you navigate the nation’s business and government regulatory landscape so you can move your business forward with confidence.
Don’t let a visit from an OHS Officer be your first interaction with compliance and legislation.
