THE CGV GROUP
The CGV Group is a third-generation family-owned business that has been building remarkable construction projects throughout northern Ontario for nearly five decades. Our family of companies is comprised of two entities – CGV Builders and CGV Developments. Together, we engage in the development, design, and construction of buildings in the commercial, institutional, industrial, and multi-residential sectors. With the combined expertise of our teams, we can function as a one-stop project partner, providing end-to-end services from concept through to completion – all under one roof.
At CGV Group, we’re rooted in the belief that a diverse and well-rounded team provides the complementary expertise that makes a project greater than the sum of its parts. We’re also firm believers that it’s our people that make CGV one of the most trusted and reputable names in the northern Ontario construction industry.
BUILDING ON A HISTORY OF TRUST
CGV’s origins can be traced back to 1975 when three carpenters with family names Chevalier, Genereux, and Vezeau joined forces to found CGV Builders Inc. – a general contracting company that specialized in the construction of single-family homes. Before long, the new business expanded its services beyond home construction projects, and established itself as a trusted general contractor known for integrity, dedication, and quality workmanship.
During the latter half of the 1990s, siblings Daniel and Michel Vezeau became the exclusive owners and operators of CGV Builders Inc. Under their leadership, the company entered new markets, strengthened its team, and continued to develop lasting relationships with clients and collaborators.
Much has changed since then. Today, our headquarters in Cochrane, ON is home to CGV Builders and CGV Developments, and we’re now known collectively as the CGV Group. A proud third-generation family-owned business, we have established ourselves as one of the leading developers and contractors in northern Ontario. Despite all the changes, one thing remains constant: fundamental values that have stood the test of time – like everything we build.
CGV’s core values define how we live and work. These are the principles that guide us, and the standards that we use to measure our success.
Honesty and Integrity
We work and build with integrity. We’re committed to honesty, building trust, and doing the right thing.
The drive for continuous improvement is fueled by our commitment to learning and growing, all to better serve our clients.
We value people above everything else. Safety is the foundation of our culture, permeating every level of our organization.
Contributing positively to the communities we work in and helping them thrive is one of our most important values.
We believe in teamwork. Our best ideas come from working together across teams, with our clients, and with our partners.
We’ve learned a lot in 48 years. How to collaborate, adapt to change, and make things happen. We’ve also learned how to innovate and grow with the times. As we prepare to celebrate half a century in business, we’re not resting on our laurels. Instead, there’s an energy in our hallways and job sites that embodies our young and motivated team.
Our mission is simple – to be the developer and contractor that owners trust for their most important projects and their toughest challenges. We earn that trust by delivering on our promises, helping our team achieve their full potential, and remaining true to our core values. How far we’ve come is impressive. Where we’re going…even more so.
PROUDLY SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE
As a company, we pride ourselves on being more than just builders and developers. We are a group of individuals with strong connections to one another and to our communities. Our leadership is committed to corporate and social responsibility – and that responsibility extends to each community in which we operate.
From engaging with local suppliers and tradespeople to partnering with non-profit organizations, we become a part of the communities that we serve, working together to enrich the lives of those around us, and leaving a lasting impact that extends beyond brick and mortar. As we move forward, we remain committed to sustaining our support for charitable organizations, academic bursaries, and other vital initiatives that are pivotal in helping communities grow and thrive.
