Our Story

Since our founding as an electrical contracting firm in Vancouver in 1960, we’ve been meeting our customer’s needs through innovative and collaborative work.

We were the first private company in Canada to have computerized estimating.

We have an Integrated Project Delivery process which results in reduced waste and maximized efficiency.

We’re at the forefront of current construction practices that create high-performance, sustainable buildings.

No wonder that Canem has served as a partner in many of Canada’s most prestigious and important building projects.

With a current workforce of over 1,200 people and offices in Calgary, Cambridge, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Vancouver, Vancouver Island and a National Roll Out Services office, we have built up our electrical contracting capacity to support virtually any size or type of installation across Western Canada.

Staying true to our roots, the company retains the flexibility to competitively serve even the smallest clients with the same interests and efficiency as large projects.

Innovation has enabled Canem to thrive for 58 years. We continue to embrace innovation, which means we’ll be around as a trusted partner for another 58 years.



Nearly six decades of success. More than 1,200 current employees.

We must be doing something right.

If you’re a dynamic, talented individual with ‘electricity’ running through
your veins, we invite you to apply to the opportunities below.
