The Name AEC

History behind the name AEC

Back in 1973, when co-founders Chris Tolley and Jerry Grad were young upstarts, they incorporated the company and needed a name. Being straight-forward guys who just wanted to do good work, they thought “Assessment & Evaluation Consulting” was simple enough; hence the name AEC was born. Over the past 40 years, it has been formally registered and referred to as AEC, with the 3 subsidiaries being called AEC Property Tax, AEC Paralegal Professional Corporation and AEC Symmaf. As the longest-standing property tax firm in Canada, we take pride in the name … and how it captures the way we do business – simple, straightforward and focused on assessment and valuation.
