The Ontario Road Building Hall of Fame, created by ORBA in 2005, recognizes and honours distinguished individuals for their dedication to and leadership and achievement in Ontario’s road building industry.

Each year, ORBA members may nominate candidates for the Hall of Fame. A voting procedure requires candidates to receive a specific percentage of the votes cast in order to be inducted. Voting is conducted by ORBA Board of Directors and Past Presidents. Successful nominees are inducted during the President’s Dinner at the annual Convention.


The Hall of Fame designation is ORBA’s highest honour and ORBA is proud to have inducted Everett McIntyre of Aecon Group Inc. at the ORBA Virtual Summit on February 4, 2021. Everett McIntyre has attended over 50 ORBA conventions and we are honoured to have been able to virtually present his award and Hall of Fame jacket with the help of his granddaughter Ashley.
