Jim is a good guy to go to for advice. Over his 37 years conducting assessments across Canada and internationally, he’s learned that you can’t be afraid to go outside your comfort zone. Developing new skills only strengthens your value as a team member. Working in the energy (gas-fired, hydro, wind, and coal), oil and gas, mining, and rail sectors, Jim is familiar with provincial and federal requirements. He’s scoped projects and assessments, provided advice on regulatory requirements, and consulted with regulators for clients. In his role as national technical lead for environmental assessment, permitting and compliance, he is one of the authors of Stantec’s environmental assessment methodology, instructing on the application of it across Canada. Although no one has written a book on him (so far), Jim sees his work at Stantec like the Lord of the Rings trilogy - a team of individuals with diverse backgrounds and skills working together in a spirit of camaraderie to solve a major problem.
We need to be empathetic with our clients, understand their needs and help them design a project that will meet regulatory requirements.
