PCL named one of Alberta’s top employers for 12th straight years and earned a spot the list of Canada’s top employers for young people for the 4th straight year.
With North American headquarters located in Edmonton since 1932 and a very active office in Calgary, PCL has strong roots in Alberta.
“PCL employs hundreds of Albertans every day on job sites and in offices across the province, as well as across the country and even in Australia,” says Harmony Carter, vice president, people and culture. “We’re proud to give them the chance to learn new skills, advance their careers and deliver iconic projects for our clients and communities.”
PCL employees can attest to the strength of the company’s culture. One of those employees is Terence Young, team leader, technology architecture, with PCL’s Business Technology team in Edmonton. As part of a company that has made the bold decision to stand out with its high-tech edge, Terence is helping the whole construction industry evolve.
PCL has been named one of Alberta’s Top Employers a total of 16 times since 2006.

- Vacation and time off
- Employee communications

PCL is also excited and honored to have been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for the fourth consecutive year. 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.
“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.
