Edmonton, Alberta (January 23, 2024) – PCL Construction is excited and honored to announce that we’ve once again landed on the list of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for 2024 — the fifth straight year we’ve earned this recognition.

At PCL, we’re committed to giving students and new graduates the best possible starts to their new careers in the construction industry. Through our mobility programs and focus on employee development, young people have the chance to gain experience and make positive contributions to iconic projects that bring communities together across North America and Australia.

“We strive to be an employer of choice for young people by offering a purpose-filled career where they can positively impact society — and explore career paths that align with their skills and interests,” says Harmony Carter, PCL’s vice president, people, and culture. “While young employees gain experience on our job sites, our established employees can also learn from the innovative, exciting ideas they bring to our company.”
