Servicing Eastern Canada & Beyond

Our company’s story began with the purchasing of Municipal Spraying and Contracting back in 1974, followed by the acquisition of New Brunswick-based Dexter Construction two years later – a company that became the true workhorse of the organization shortly after. Thanks to its role in developing critical infrastructure in Halifax Regional Municipality and surrounding areas, Dexter-Municipal was soon recognized as the preeminent heavy civil contractor in the region. A range of superior capabilities, including highway and bridge construction, site development, asphalt paving, quarry services and hauling gave the Municipal Group its well-earned reputation for excellence in the roadbuilding industry.

Over the years, we have strategically expanded into related industries (environmental services, logistics) while growing our geographic reach and team. Along the way, we have remained steadfastly focused on our guiding principles and core values of Vision, Integrity, and Stability. We recognize that the key to our success lies in the hands of highly skilled, world-class employees, and we strive for excellence in safety and productivity with every job—no matter the size, scope, or service.

Join Our Team

With numerous opportunities across a wide range of industries, the Municipal Group is always seeking the best people to contribute to our growth and success. An expanding geographic presence, coupled with growth in the industries we serve—heavy civil construction, waste management, and logistics—continues to open new paths for employment.

If you're interested in building a rewarding career with a recognized leader, we'd love to hear from you!
