Lafarge Canada has announced that MediaCorp Canada Inc. has named the company as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People – a recognition that speaks to Lafarge Canada’s commitment to foster a workplace where growth, learning and development are key components of its Employee Value Proposition.

“This is a big achievement,” says David Redfern, CEO, Eastern Canada. “Cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset in our young talent is at the core of our Lafarge Leadership Development Programme; one of the reasons why we've been named one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People. Receiving this award is a testament to that, and illustrates our ongoing commitment to developing our people.”

Brad Kohl, CEO, Western Canada, continues: “With our priority of building sustainably across all of Canada, the ideas and contributions of new innovators are essential. We're proud of our culture that welcomes young people, and we are even more proud of their solutions and creativity as we see our industry change and grow."

Lafarge Canada received the recognition due to:

  • Co-op placements and internship opportunities available in a number of Lafarge Canada's business areas, including concrete, aggregates, pipe, asphalt, environment and finance – placements range from four months to 12 months in duration and may include a living allowance, rent-free accommodations and airfare to and from school, depending on the location.
  • Lafarge Canada cultivates future talent for leadership positions through the Lafarge Leadership Development Programme, which recently expanded to accept new graduates from across the country – the 24-month programme (with a commitment of ensuring that 50% of its participants are female) consists of rotations through several aspects of the business.
