Edmonton, Alberta (January 24, 2023) – PCL Construction is excited and honored to announce that we’ve been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for the fourth consecutive year.
PCL is dedicated to fostering a culture where young employees can play key roles on exciting construction projects and take advantage of significant professional development opportunities, including mentorship programs, right from the get-go. Being named a Top Employer for Young People once again is a testament to the collective effort of our teams to develop the next generation of construction leaders.
“We value the contributions that our young employees make to PCL’s overall success, and we strive to make them feel valued from day one of their employment,” says Harmony Carter, vice president, people and culture. “We had over 600 participants in our Canadian student program in 2022, and we hired numerous other recent graduates — all of whom got the mentorship, support and experience they needed to get a head start on their careers in the construction industry.
“Together, we’re building better futures for our employees, our clients and our company.”
One of those young employees whose future looks bright is Simon Lamy, a project coordinator with PCL’s new office in Montreal. After six co-op placements with PCL, including four in Vancouver, he knew he wanted a career with the company because of the passionate people he met along the way. Simon is also a proud recipient of PCL’s Canadian Buildings National Student Scholarship. Read more about Simon’s journey and PCL’s selection on the Canada’s Top Employer’s for Young People website.
Canada’s Top Employers for Young People is a competition organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, a national competition to determine which employers lead their industries in offering the best workplaces for their employees. In November 2022, PCL was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the 14th year in a row.
