We are here for you

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.
