CommunityCollective

We are better together

At Stantec, we are a value-driven organization. In light of what is happening in our communities today, one of our core values We Are Better Together has never been more important. We know our clients and communities are looking to us for solutions and support, so while we may not be physically together right now, our community spirit has never been more alive. We have partnered with A4LE to offer a complimentary collection of learning resources focused on supporting our education community.

The CommunityCollective is a platform of connectivity as we are all experiencing quarantines and working from home. Please check here for the schedule of future offerings as we intend to host weekly webinars.
