Drummondville, Quebec, October 23, 2019 - Venmar Ventilation ULC is proud to announce its participation in the Well Made Here program, a non-profit organization under federal charter whose mission is to promote the purchase of quality construction materials and other Canadian-made products for the residential market.
This program accredits quality products, items and materials that meet current building regulations, standards and codes. At least 51% of direct manufacturing costs (production material and labour, assembly, and packaging) have been incurred in Canada.

The Well Made Here mission reflects many of our company’s values by ensuring that consumers can make informed purchase decisions and have full confidence in Canadian-made products, while also supporting local economies and manufacturing jobs.
