History

Menard Bros and Associates  Ltd is a second generation company owned by Guy and Paul Menard.

Claude and Gaetan Menard, the founders of the Menard Group, moved to Cornwall in 1955 to enter the construction industry, 50 years later, their accomplishments have touched so many families in the area that we can only highlight some of them:

  • Seven (7) residential subdivisions
  • Over 1000 satisfied new home owners
  • First Gold Medallion home in Cornwall
  • First R2000 home in the city of Cornwall
  • Numerous non profit housing projects
  • Numerous rental accommodations
  • Numerous industrial buildings
  • Numerous commercial buildings
  • Warehouse rental space
  • Impressive Office complex

The founders have built their business with….

  • integrity and honesty
  • hard work and sacrifice
  • aggressive entrepreneurial spirit
  • an innovative and positive mental attitude
  • a burning desire to continuously improve
  • giving back to the community, time and time again

In 1988 Guy and Paul Menard, the two sons of the founders, took over the residential sector of the family business, following the family recipe for a satisfied customer while trying to improve upon it. The result: in 1994, The Ontario New Home Warranty Program chose Menard Bros & Associates Ltd as the recipient of the coveted “Ernest Assaly Award.” This award is given to the top builder in the province of Ontario, among 5300 builders, for after sales service and quality of construction!

In 2006, Menard Bros & Associates were finalists in the Tarion Awards of Escellence and in 2007, Menard Bros & Associates were the recipient of the Tarion “Builder of the Year” award for their category. These “Awards of Excellence” given by Tarion (previously known as the Ontario New Home Warranty Program) were determined through a comprehensive survey sent to over 53,000 Ontario consumers who took possession of a new home during the year.

In short, Menard Bros & Associates Ltd have repeatedly been chosen as the top builder in the province for after sales service and quality of construction. To the customer, this ensures solid value from both angles!

In 2013, Paul and Guy celebrated their 25th anniversary within the Menard Group.

In 2015,  The Menard Group celebrates their 60th anniversary!

In 2016,  Menard Bros & Associates are finalists in the 2016 Homeowners’ Choice Award,(small volume category)  presented by Tarion.  Formerly known as the Tarion Awards of Escellence, the Homeowerns’ Choice Awards recognize a builder’s excellence in customer service.  The process for selecting finalists has not changed, only the name has changed to better reflect how the award recipients are chosen.
