JLR’s story unfolds in 1955 with three young entrepreneurs and some rented space in downtown Ottawa. These inspired engineers had a vision to provide consulting engineering services. Fast forward almost 70 years to an employee-owned multidisciplinary firm of over 400 employees, spanning seven offices across Ontario with completed projects in over 75 countries.
