About Vard Electro Canada Inc.

Vard Electro Canada delivers full-scale electrical engineering design, marine procurement, and integrated solutions for vessels in the marine industry. With the ability to operate as a specialized system integrator (SSI), we can provide everything from concept design to equipment purchase to equipment integration through the warranty period. We are proud to be a contributor on Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) for new ship construction and are the designated Electrical Engineering Design Centre of Excellence for Government Vessels within Vard Group.

Vard Electro Canada was incorporated in 2016 and we are a subsidiary of Vard Electro AS. What started with a handful of employees has now grown substantially to span across our offices in Vancouver and Ottawa, and we are continuing to grow.
