Jordan Jolicoeur and brother Joel took ownership of Carvel Electric in 2013 when their father retired. Since then, the brothers have expanded the business from wiring jobs in houses and small commercial buildings to larger industrial jobs. The two had a vision to build on the company’s core values of being a respected, reliable family company, coupled with progressive and forward-thinking Aboriginal enterprise. The drive to succeed has led this company to great clients and contracts with Kinder Morgan Canada (KMC) and CP Rail.
Four years later, Jordan is being honoured with the Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneur of the Year Award by the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business.
“There were a number of well-deserving recipients, but what separated Jordan from the others is that he took a vision from his Dad and he built it up with his brother,” said JP Gladu, president and CEO for the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business. Jolicoeur said he has continued his father Sylvio’s approach in hiring from First Nations communities, with six of his 10 employees identifying as Indigenous.
