At Emard Lumber you can shop for your building supplies without ever leaving your vehicle. Drive up to the gate, provide a copy of your invoice, and one of our yard staff will instruct you where to pick it up. Other staff will load your vehicle for you. We provide this service year round, to save you time and effort.

Our Story

Serving you since 1925

Emard Bros. Lumber has grown from its origins in 1925, as a small lumber mill and window manufacturer.

Founded by Joe and George Emard in 1925, Emard Bros. Lumber is now in its fourth generation as a family business. From its origins as a small lumber mill and window manufacturer, to its present day 10,000 sq. ft. hardware store and accompanying 10 acres of lumber and building supplies, Emard Bros. has developed a solid reputation as both a contractor store, and the consumer’s first choice when it comes to new home building and renovating.

As a member of ILDC, Canada’s largest independent buying group, Emard Bros. offers both competitive prices, and provides its account customers with a very advantageous payment plan. This way our customers realize they are building their dreams without the stress of high interest terms.

Finally, what puts Emard Bros. Lumber head and shoulders above the rest is our service. We have the most qualified people in the business working with us, and as a result, boast a before and after service that is second to none.

We’ve been proudly serving the people of Cornwall and area for over 85 years, and look forward to developing new friendships in the years to come.

Sincerely,

Chris Emard 

Emard Bros. Lumber is a member of the Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce and the Seaway Valley Construction and Trades Association.
