A National Network
Independent Merit Associations operate in all provinces of Canada, except for Quebec and PEI. While the services provided in each province are tailored to the needs of that jurisdiction, a common philosophy and passionate belief in the rights of open shop contractors binds the associations together.
Merit Canada was established in November 2008 as a united national voice for eight provincial Open Shop construction associations. Merit Canada supports and promotes
- the right of employers and employees to operate within a free enterprise system of commerce
- wages and working conditions being determined directly between employers and employees or through collective bargaining processes, as freely chosen by the parties;
- a building climate where construction contracts are awarded based on merit
