EBC is a family business founded in 1968 by Fernand Houle and his brother Germain. They built the company on their core values of respect, integrity and a job well done — values that the current president, Marie-Claude Houle, is proud to uphold. Since Ms. Houle assumed the leadership of the company in 1999, annual revenues have soared from $100 million to $1 billion, making EBC one of Canada’s largest construction companies. We have a team of some 2,300 employees with offices in Québec City, Montréal, Brossard, Ottawa, Mississauga, Timmins, and Vancouver.
In the last 50 years, EBC has contributed to some 720 projects totalling about $22 billion. From Newfoundland and Labrador to New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia, as well as the international arena, clients have chosen EBC for our professionalism and our respect of budgets and timelines. This rigorous approach is applied to all our projects, whether building construction, civil engineering, earthworks, mining, marine works, energy transport, wind power, etc.
