PCL Ottawa has been a valued partner of the National Arts Centre since 2009. As two truly dynamic, national organizations, we share a belief in connecting Canadians through the arts and this spectacular  facility they perform in.

“We are very excited and proud to be working with the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Together we share a vision to connect Canadians to build stronger communities and a stronger country,” said Kevin Skinner, Vice President and District Manager for PCL’s Ottawa operations. " As we approach Canada’s 150 anniversary, we are providing our support for the performing arts in Canada not only through financial opportunities, but also by giving them a newly renovated platform with which the artists can shine, on a new stage, through the Canada Scene festival.”
