Lafarge Canada's statement in response to discrimination

An act of discrimination involving a symbol of hatred has taken place in one of our workplaces in Montreal. This is an incident that we will not condone or tolerate.

Since learning about the incident, we have conducted an investigation and in light of the information we have gathered, terminating the employment of the individual who perpetrated this act - the strongest possible sanction - was the right, and only, thing to do. This corrective measure serves as a testament to Lafarge Canada's position in regard to discrimination of all types, and our zero tolerance policy when it comes to such matters.

April 1, 2020: VANCOUVER

Lafarge Canada celebrates the completion of a highly demanding project along the BC coast for one of Canada’s largest rail companies. Working with CP Rail, Lafarge was retained to construct a rail spur at a local refinery adjacent to a busy existing rail line. As CP’s refinery ships its product via rail and ship only, vehicle access to the site of the new rail spur was nonexistent.
