About Lafarge

Lafarge is Canada's largest provider of solutions to the construction and development industry. With more than 6000 employees across Canada, our mission is to provide construction solutions that build better cities and communities. The cities where we live, work, and raise our families along with the infrastructure that supports our communities such as roads, bridges, transportation links, water, and waste management benefit from the solutions provided by Lafarge.

Through our Sustainability Ambitions for 2020, Lafarge is committed to providing solutions using sustainable manufacturing practices and improving the environment in and around our operations. At locations across Canada, we have worked to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, restore wetlands for native plants and animals, and identify waste materials that can be recycled and used at our operations.

We have been a proud member of the Dundas community since 1998. The Dundas Quarry, has been operated in Dundas since the early 1900s.

The majority of our products are all used within an hour’s drive of Dundas and benefit our community by providing aggregate products to the construction, steel, glass manufacturing, automotive, and agricultural industries.

Construction projects that you may be familiar with have used aggregates from the Dundas Quarry. These include water treatment plants (Jack Darling/Lorne Park, Lakeview, Oakville water and wastewater treatment plants), institutional projects (Hamilton General Hospital and St Joe’s Hospital Expansions, McMaster University Expansions of the Engineering Building, Football Training Fields and DeGroote School of Business), 400 series highways and local road improvement projects (407 ETR, Lincoln Alexander Parkway, QEW Expansion, Bronte Road, Appleby Line, Highway 6), Hamilton bridges (Burlington Skyway Bridge), Copps Coliseum, Air Canada Centre (ACC), Flamborough’s Innovation Centre, and the City of Hamilton’s Bayfront Park.
