Designing for the future is about more than predicting what it looks like. It’s about having the know-how and the expertise to turn predictions into projects that deliver results and meet ever-changing needs. That’s what we do every day: for our clients, for their customers and for the sustainable future of our business and the world we operate in.

Here at SNC-Lavalin’s Ottawa office, we believe in developing our employees to their utmost potential.  We promote teamwork and collaboration, which is why our culture speaks for itself; our people are motivated to give their best and have a sense of personal fulfillment.  Each member of our team is integral in ensuring a positive work place backed by a company committed to the safety of its employees.

Our once small office has seen exponential and continuous growth since its opening in 2016, going from 3 to over 100 employees!  To keep the positive trend going, we are seeking to add another superstar to our team…
