Did you know that PCL’s history stretches back 111 years? That makes PCL not only one of Canada’s oldest contractors, but also one of its oldest companies. As Canada grew, so did PCL. Indeed, Canada’s growth, from east to west, mirrors that of PCL and the journey of its founder, E. E. Poole, which was to take place only a few short decades after Confederation. In 1906, Poole set forth from his home in Prince Edward Island to the West, where he founded the company that would become PCL.
