Let Our Wejuseg Lift Your Project to Success
Wejuseg Construction Inc. is a privately-owned construction company offering general contracting services for civil engineering projects. Our highly skilled team has the proven capability to deliver work of the highest standard in some of Canada’s most challenging terrain. Operating in Quebec and New Brunswick, Wejuseg is a Mi’gmaq owned company with access to a bilingual Mi’gmaq team of professionals and tradespersons.
Wejuseg means “powerful wind”. With the completion of the wind park in Gaspesie, Quebec we were able to train and engage over 100 Mi’gmaq tradespeople. Creating an energy source from the wind was empowering. Watching our community learn skills and engage in the project was uplifting. These projects were on Mi’gmaq land and were completed with the help of the Mi’gmaq people. Pride in our work is paramount and by naming the company Wejuseg it is our way of honouring our Mi’gmaq heritage. We have the desire and the expertise to create big things. Let our powerful wind lift your project to success.
