Merit Builds Program

Join Merit


This program recognizes military veterans (and spouses) in need of improvements or upgrades to existing areas of their homes.

Our goal is to make living easier for veterans by assisting with minor renovation projects such as door widenings, wheelchair ramps, and bathroom upgrades.

Merit NS is pleased to be working with MP Peter Stoffer and VETS Canada CEO, Jim Lowther, to identify and work with those veterans in need. The Merit NS Board of Directors decide on projects based on the following factors:

  • The number of Merit NS member companies involved in the program.
  • The time and ability of each member company to fulfill program/job requirements.
  • Cost of service and our ability to secure project sponsors.
“There’s so much potential here. It’s very exciting. There’s an incredible need for this in this country…it’s a real hands-on approach. Having local contractors and partners who care this much fills your soul with pride.”
“This is not a charity, it’s our way of repaying a debt owed to individuals who have gone above and beyond to serve our country. We’re fully committed to making daily living in their homes a little easier.”
