For over three decades Merit Contractors has been a leader in the construction industry and the choice of demanding clients across South Central Ontario. With unparalleled experience and expertise in managing the full range of commercial, industrial and institutional building projects, Merit has left their stamp on some of the most impressive buildings in the Golden Horseshoe and surrounding regions.

At Merit, we enjoy the challenge that comes from constructing buildings that stand out above the crowd. Our ability to meet these challenges comes from the team approach we employ on all our jobs, the knowledge and experience we have gathered throughout the years and the perceptive attention to detail we initiate as we bring to life what previously existed only in our client’s imagination. The flexibility of services that Merit provides has allowed us to stay atop the construction industry. Whether you are contemplating interior or exterior renovations to an existing building or are planning a new state of the art facility, Merit has the ability to adjust its focus to suit your needs while still providing the same level of quality and dedication the company is known for.

"Our Mission is to Build Dreams - Our Vision is to deliver the smartest construction solutions for the most challenging projects."
