With the milestone, the company’s experts – now at the forefront of the decarbonization and sustainability movements – see significant opportunities to accelerate Canada’s deployment of advanced infrastructure assets.
In a country that has long invested in resilient, reliable infrastructure to serve its broad, diverse geographical needs, Black & Veatch opened its Toronto operations in 1960 to help build power and water infrastructure capacity.

These professionals are key to the company’s globally integrated workforce. The company’s presence is expected to rise as Black & Veatch sees increasing demand in Canada for solutions that balance performance, resilience, reliability and sustainability.
