Beyond product innovation, we have developed global and local integrated solutions. These construction systems offer a solid package in terms of cost, durability, strength, insulation, appearance and ease of application. We lead the evolution of building materials by listening intensely to you, our customers. Our innovative background merges with our everyday work in project planning with customers to bring highly relevant solutions.
Innovation also means new services. We are involved in the design phase of projects, working with architects and construction companies on solutions that have to meet an increasingly complex set of challenges, both technical and aesthetic. We also work with our product contractors closely to ensure proper application for the end-user and at the very end of their life cycle, we recycle demolition products.
The innovative construction solutions that we introduce to the market do not happen overnight. There is a massive amount of research and development (and funding) that happens first at LafargeHolcim Research Centre in Lyon, France - our “innovation hub”, in addition to local research and development being done at our Technical Centres in Canada.

Lafarge Canada wants to make Canadian cities and the communities within them even better. Our vision is to become the leading provider of solutions to the construction industry, and our mission is to provide solutions that build better cities and communities.
Lafarge is responding to the immense urban growth of the 21st century, and the challenges that we will all face as a result. Despite having a huge landmass, Canadian residents are increasingly collecting in urban areas and small towns that were once rural communities on the outskirts of cities have rapidly expanded.
Cities are facing new challenges as they grow so congested. That is why Lafarge is committed to helping design, build and maintain urban development and meet the demand for more livable, sustainable cities by providing more housing, that is more compact, more beautiful, more durable and better connected.
A diverse landmass, valuable natural resources and unpredictable climates are what make Canada so unique, and Lafarge Canada spans right across it. With 6,000 employees and 350 sites across Canada, our mission is to provide construction solutions that build better cities and communities.
