A company with very humble roots, that continues to demonstrate a commitment to the community and its customers in Northern Ontario. Vector Construction (www.vector-construction.com), a company with more than 50 years of experience continues to grow and find new ways to be innovative and engaging.

A company built on its presence in the community; continues to ensure that its future opportunities will be innovative and engaging with its recent appointment of its first ever Manager of Indigenous Business Development.

An integral part of Vector’s growth strategy, not only at the local level, but nationally is its focus on the inclusion of the Indigenous people in the firm. Within Northern Ontario, and across Canada,  most businesses are facing challenges recruiting new employees. As a company Vector is aware that the Indigenous community is the fastest growing segment of the Canadian population; a demographic that is available and prepared to contribute to Canada’s growth and prosperity.  

Vector will increase the number of Indigenous employees within its workforce, filling a variety of roles from the field level to management. Vector will also continue to support Indigenous businesses, by procuring services and supplies from them when and where possible.

This was evident in project Vector recently completed in the region for the Ministry of Transportation at the Nipigon River Bridge where Vector utilized the skills of not only the local community members, but members of the local Indigenous Communities. In collaboration with our local unions, Vector is pleased to confirm that 50 per cent of our team was comprised of the local talent from the Indigenous communities. Not only did Vector commit to hiring local people, where possible necessary services were procured from the local businesses; including water supply, gas supply and food and lodgings for our out-of-town team members.

Although the hiring of a Manager of Indigenous Business Development is new, Vector has for many years worked closely with Indigenous groups, mostly in Western Canada.  The hiring of this Manager means, that Vector now has someone in place to further drive its commitment to helping all of its divisions engage in building stronger mutually beneficial relationships with indigenous communities.

If you are interested to learn more about Vector Construction, its Indigenous Business Development initiative or opportunities to join our team, please call our office and connect with Jason Thompson, email: jasont@vector-construction.com or by phone at 807-621-5726.

Vector is privileged to have been given the opportunities presented to our firm and are proud of the success it has achieved over the years. Having served our customers in Northern Ontario for more than 30 years, Vector looks forward to continued success.
