We operate VEC with the best systems and elements of military training and work. We consult with subject matter experts for the best in business infrastructure and for the highest craftsmanship. We are passionate for our trades AND are passionate about helping other veterans find fulfilling work after leaving the military.

Veterans Enterprises Corp traces its roots back to the owner’s time served in the Canadian military. After being introduced back in the civilian world the owners of VEC soon learnt the difficulties a veteran faces merging back into society. With the military and business/contracting skills the owners possessed they decided to found VEC to provide quality services for clients and build a positive culture for veteran employees. We are not only building opportunity but we are also building community. 


People at VEC are motivated and focused on two goals:

  1. Match a Veteran's combination of skills, attributes and training with trades in building and renovation.

  2. Deliver the highest level of customer confidence and satisfaction.




We believe in that personal touch and we want you to be comfortable and to have the utmost trust in us to complete your project to your specifications. So learn more about us below.
