We have been at the cutting edge of pre-fabrication and project management for nearly 60 years. At Canem, we’ve been at it a long time, because we’re the contractors who build it right the first time. Our innovative solutions don’t just solve problems; they pre-empt them entirely.

A Message From Our President

I’m very excited to greet all of you who are first time visitors to Canem’s new website.
Our new logo, visuals, and tagline are representative of both a new Canem and a
Canem that is back to its roots as a premier electrical contractor – and soon to be a
multi-trade contractor with the re-addition of a mechanical offering. .


Indeed, Canem was born a multi-trade company almost 60 years ago as CANadian Electrical and Mechanical, and our shared goal is to re-establish that which has made us a top tier contractor to the Commercial Construction and Services industry.

What is that?  Our strength = our people and their ability to build relationships with our customers and industry partners to clearly identify their needs and take care to deliver on those needs with best in class design, pre-planning and prefabrication processes and technologies.  This is not a new concept, but Canem does this better than any other electrical contractor out there and has for a long time, as Canem was the first electrical contractor in Canada to use estimating software.  Taking care to deliver on our customers’ needs, honouring our relationships – before, during and after the job is done –  is what makes us a preferred electrical contractor right now, and will make us a preferred multi-trade contractor down the road.

That’s why I’m also pleased that during the last year we’ve brought our Contractors That Care attitude to a wider Canadian market.  Canem has expanded into Ontario and will be opening its newest Regional Branch office in Cambridge, offering design, pre-planning and prefabrication construction services to south and south-western Ontario customers from Windsor to Niagara Region.  Look for our industry soiree branch grand opening announcement soon.

And finally, I’m very proud to be a part of the Canem team.  Since I took on the President’s role, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting all our branch locations across Western Canada multiple times.  A big thank you to all Canem employees for welcoming me into the legacy we’re continuing to build together.
