  The most rewarding part of my job is when a client or coworker calls me up and wants me on a project—it means I made a positive impression, and I’m a valued team player.

Leslie Merrithew

Civil Engineer

Yellowknife, Nothwest Territories

Born and raised in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Leslie truly understands what it’s like to live, work, and play in the north. Her passion is helping people and communities grow to their potential. At work, she does this by shaping the land around her projects, like a kid in a sandbox.

Leslie has successfully delivered projects all across the north, in a wide range of disciplines including aviation, bulk fuel, municipal, and transportation. She has a passion for her surroundings that translates directly into her work, and she brings a vibrant and optimistic energy to our northern civil group.

Recently, Leslie worked on the Iqaluit International Airport Improvement project—Nunavut’s first P3 project and North America’s first airport P3 project. She was one of the main civil designers, and her work included everything from runway and taxiway design, to landside road development, and bringing underground services to the new air terminal and combined services buildings.

She’s bilingual in French and English, and her passion for aviation infrastructure has led her to become involved with improving northern airports from Iqaluit, Nunavut, to Anchorage, Alaska, and several others in between.
