Who We Are
EllisDon Developments has evolved from the success of EllisDon Capital – the division that’s delivered 54 Public-Private Partnership projects over the last 20 years. In developing some of Canada’s biggest, most complicated projects, we’ve refined our approach to leading interdisciplinary teams, including experts in all major disciplines.
EllisDon Developments builds on this history and our cradle-to-grave strategy to deliver great buildings with a focus on quality and thoughtful design.
A Firm Foundation
EllisDon offers world-class construction services and direct access to industry experts in every specialty along the way. We demand a passionate commitment to quality and hire people who share the values that make EllisDon people great to work with.
Freedom & Trust
We hire the best and then give our people the freedom to decide how they accomplish their work and make our clients successful.
We empower people, not processes, and deliver on our commitments to each other, which makes us extremely fast, fluid, and flexible.
We create opportunities, innovate continuously, and refuse to be constrained by conventional thinking.
Integrity and Mutual Respect
We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and treat everyone the way we would like to be treated.
We share everything about our company with our people, because the best and most satisfying work is done when everyone sees and understands the goal.
We live in the communities we build in and are actively involved in helping them thrive. Contributing positively to any community we work in and understanding their unique needs is one of our most important values. While we’re a large company, our foundational initiatives are often driven by the causes close to individual employees’ hearts.
Diversity & Inclusion
We welcome people from all walks of life. No matter your age, culture, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, nationality, ethnicity, race, size, mental or physical status, veteran status, religion, language, political opinion, socio-economic status, or education, if you’re passionate about what you do, there’s a place for you at EllisDon.
We take things a step further by seeking to empower underrepresented groups. Understanding the challenges faced by Canada’s Indigenous Peoples, developing mutually beneficial relationships, and becoming actively involved in their communities and economic growth.
Sustainability is woven into everything we do. Success to us means investing in our collective futures. As a world-leading construction and building services company, EllisDon is committed to reducing GHG emissions by 42% by 2030 and achieving net-zero by 2050 or sooner. We recently published our 2022 Impact Report highlighting how we are on our way to meeting these objectives. From the materials we choose to our production methods and intelligent use of design and technology, we’re aiming for net zero emissions by 2050 in everything we build.
We believe everyone should go home safe to their families every night. As a company that believes in safety not as a matter of business but of integrity, EllisDon is committed to developing a strong safety culture, eliminating injuries, and protecting and maintaining the complete well-being of each employee as well as the health and safety of the communities we work in.
