Dave and Lael McKeown

David’s father founded Ominica Building Supplies in Terrace in the 1950’s.

David started Progressive Ventures in 1972. He began with housing, then soon moved into commercial real estate development, all while taking on a variety of construction projects as a general contractor.  

Lael joined David in 1974 and soon became an active partner in the company. Since then, Lael has been dynamic pillar in community development as a director of the Chamber of Commerce, Terrace Economic Development Authority, K.T. Industrial Development Society and the Terrace-Kitimat Airport Society.


Both David and Lael are retired now but they remain strong supporters of the community of Terrace and the Northwest, recognizing that this is an area of great opportunity and lifestyle.

Thank you for your great work on the Smithers Provincial Government Building.   ...You and Progressive Ventures demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and quickly gained my confidence.  Given the complexity of the project..., your expertise and commitment to detail contributed greatly to the success.
