Aecon Group Inc. is a Canadian leader and partner-of-choice in construction and infrastructure development. We deliver integrated, turnkey services to private and public sector clients in the Infrastructure and Industrial sectors, and provide project management, financing and development services through our Concessions segment. We build big and we think big.

 

Based out of Aecon’s Toronto head office, the Corporate Marketing Communications Team produces compelling digital and print content to inform, engage, and inspire the people of Aecon. With multiple offices and sites across the company, keeping everybody up to date in an ever-changing, fast-paced environment is a huge challenge – and we thrive on it! We also lead the way when it comes to the Aecon brand, developing marketing collateral – videos, brochures, signage, ads, tradeshow materials – for both internal and external clients. And when it’s event time, this is the go-to team for conference and event logistics, making it happen for corporate functions of all sizes and scopes, from executive leadership meetings to fun holiday celebrations.
