5th Annual 40 Under 40 in Canadian Construction

Presented by On-Site Magazine and SitePartners


A milestone year for a milestone program, On-Site’s 40 Under 40 in Canadian Construction returns for its fifth edition!

Since 2020, On-Site Magazine and SitePartners have been recognizing exceptional, progressive and innovative young leaders who are advancing the movement of construction in Canada. This year’s edition will mark the 5th group of honourees.

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 fifth year, we are looking forward to recognizing the next class of top professionals who have made an impact on the industry, rising through the ranks of their companies throughout their 20s or 30s. The nomination period has concluded for this year. Watch for the Class of 2024 to be revealed in the September edition of On-Site Magazine. 

And please put the program on the radar for next year. We anticipate the nomination window to open in early June, which is when we will be asking for you to nominate 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 each year of the program) 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 an issue of On-Site Magazine.
