4th Annual Top 40 Under 40 in Canadian Construction

Presented by On-Site Magazine and SitePartners

The Top 40 Under 40 in Canadian Construction is back!

On-Site Magazine and SitePartners have returned to recognize a new group of exceptional, progressive, and innovative young leaders who are advancing the movement of construction in Canada!

Last year, we celebrated the accomplishments of 40 construction professionals who are making an immediate impact in the cities, provinces, and country in which they live. Featuring individuals both on- and off-site who are helping advance complex infrastructure projects, implementing or launching powerful technology tools for jobsites, and building communities for families to thrive, the far-reaching contributions of last years’ winners is a promising reflection of where the Canadian construction industry is heading.

Now in its fourth year, we are excited to announce that the call for submissions for the 2023 Top 40 Under 40 in Canadian Construction is now underway!

We are, once again, looking for a cross-section of impressive professionals from all areas of the construction industry. Our previous three editions have featured individuals who have made an impact on the industry, rising through the ranks of their companies throughout their 20s or 30s. Honourees have included: Architects, Contractors, Designers, Engineers, Equipment Operators, Estimators, Executives, Occupational Health & Safety Managers, Project Managers, Quantity Surveyors, Site Supervisors, Superintendents, Tradespersons, and many more in the consulting, law, finance, and technology communities that support Canadian construction. If you know someone under 40 as of the end of this year who is building up Canada’s construction sector, please nominate them for this special, and highly regarded recognition.

Winners for the Top 40 Under 40 in Canadian Construction will be chosen based on professional achievements, innovation, leadership, and community involvement, and will be profiled in the October 2023 issue of On-Site Magazine.
