Why Invest?

Our business is people

Stantec is a professional services firm. Our team of global experts provides engineering, architecture, environmental, and project management services across all phases of the project life cycle.

We designed a strategy for industry-leading performance

Our historical model for success has propelled us to be top-tier global design firm. We’re currently top three in North America and top 10 in the world. Our priorities are growing top-line revenue organically and by acquisition, pursuing the best mix of service offerings and geographic presence, and maintaining an efficient administrative cost structure.

We created a business model that responds to change

Our business model is a key part of our strategy. We are diversified by client type, business line, and geography, and we provide specialized services across the infrastructure and facilities project life cycles. We also maintain a balanced portfolio of work. At any one time, we’re working on tens of thousands of projects, running the gamut from local scale to global scale. All of this means we can adapt to changing market conditions by offsetting decreased demand for services in one business with increased demand in another.

We have a proven track record

One of our strategies is to grow our business through acquisitions—it’s a very efficient approach. Since 1994, we've completed over 130 acquisitions. We acquire not only the expertise of our staff but also local client relationships. We believe the best way to leverage the business combination is to fully integrate acquired companies into our model.
