  The North is people, places, and projects, and I enjoy the work associated with each.

Ken Johnson


Edmonton, Alberta

Ken knows the infrastructure of Canada’s north like few others.

After almost 30 years working and occasionally living in the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut, Ken’s work in water, sanitation, and community planning helps communities flourish from Baffin Island to Dawson City. He has helped communities with landfill problems, planned areas for new neighbourhoods, engineered wastewater systems, and much more.

Ken’s experience gives him more than a solid grasp on the considerable challenges the north presents to project construction. It also gives him connections—to people, to the land, and the history of both. His understanding of the region and its inhabitants lets him anticipate and proactively solve client needs.

Ken is also a prolific writer on the North’s history and infrastructure, with over 60 conference papers and magazines publications to his credit. A former chair of the cold regions engineering division of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, he currently leads the publication of the Journal of the Northern Territories Water and Waste Association.
