SiteNews releases list of ‘Construction’s Most Influential People’

The new awards program celebrates construction leaders setting an example for others and pushing the industry forward.

After weeks of going through submissions, SiteNews has finally revealed its list of inspiring construction leaders who are influencing Canadian construction for the better. 

Construction’s Most Influential People, a new annual awards program, recognizes individuals across all sectors who significantly impact Canadian construction. Nominees can be of any age and hold any position, as long as their work benefits the built environment. Nominations were self-submitted or made on behalf of others, with details on why the nominee deserves recognition. Winners were selected by a panel of staff from SiteNews.

The list of over 50 individuals includes builders, CEOs, educators, architects, lawyers, association leaders, social media stars and more. 

“Construction is powered by people, whether they are behind a desk or on the jobsite,” said Russell Hixson, SiteNews editor. “And construction is more important than ever, whether it’s creating data centres that power AI, roads that carry our goods, transit for commuters or affordable housing to ease the affordability crisis. We want to make sure the men and women doing this work get the recognition they deserve.”

The Most Influential list comes off the heels of SiteNews’ other awards program, the 25 Innovators in Construction Awards which sought out the industry’s most cutting edge companies. The SiteNews team explained that the latest awards program is part of a broader strategy to equip, educate and elevate the construction sector.

“The public rarely hears about the immense skill and passion that goes into creating the built environment that they live in,” said Brett Rutledge, SiteNews co-founder. “This is just another way that we can highlight the incredible work that the industrial sector does, and the people behind it. Congratulations to all the winners. We see you and you are appreciated.”
