About Pickard Construction

Pickard Construction specializes in all aspects of telecommunications-related new construction, repair and maintenance involving both buried and aerial infrastructure . The company was founded in 1979 by Maurice & Donna Pickard of Meaford, Ontario. The company continues to be solely owned and operated by its founders.

Since its inception Pickard Construction has grown from two employees in one location to over 250 employees at seven permanent Ontario locations. The head office, major shop facility and main yard are located in Owen Sound, Ontario. Regional offices & yards are situated in Huntsville, Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie, North Bay, London, Chatham and in Collingwood, Ontario. The company has successfully completed major projects as far north as Kapuskasing, as far west as Thunder Bay, as far east as Peterborough, and as far south as Windsor.

Pickard Construction has consistently grown at a double digit rate during this decade, and projects a continuing controlled expansion through increased sales into the future. The consistent growth and continuing success of Pickard Construction has been and will continue to be based upon its unwavering commitment to constantly improving the quality of its services and the quality of the infrastructure that it installs.

The concept of a job well done and on time is at the core of Pickard Construction's value system. New employees are taught it when they are hired on, and existing employees are provided with refresher training on a regular basis. This philosophy benefits the company, the employee and the customer.

Accessibility Plan For Pickard Construction "AODA"

The attached accessibility plan will outline policies that Pickard Construction will follow to make more opportunities for disabled people in the workplace. We will review our plan annually.

We will take every opportunity to meet the needs of disabled people and employees as quickly as possible by removing the barriers for accessibility under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

We have provided training to the frontline employees who will be in contact with disabled people entering our office. This training educates our front line employees on the human rights codes and accessibility laws as it relates to people with disabilities. This training has been offered in the form of a slide show presentation and all required people have been signed off on the training.

We will provide customers, potential clients and disabled employees with emergency response information if required or requested at any time.

We will work towards making all of our information available by request either by website, telephone or email if requested at any time.

Pickards is committed to fair and accessible employment practices and will make sure all possibilities are explored for accessibilty when potentially hiring a disabled person. Also for persons who were possibly injured on the job we commit to working with them to get them back to work as soon as possible by fitting their needs and limitations until they are fully rehabilitated or otherwise.

If our website or front line employees do not fit the needs of persons with disablities we commit to working with them to resolve as quickly as possible for resolution.

If you have feedback for us or a potential way to make our practices better or more inline with disabled persons needs please get ahold of us at our email address or feel free to call our office and speak to the Health and Safety Manager Jeremy Lewis. He will be glad to work with you on these requirements.
