Bringing together the right expertise

Our team is passionate about the relationship between our natural and built environments. We draw from over 20 technical specialties to form teams that are uniquely suited for your project, whether it’s a new hospital, a road, or a wind farm. We balance innovation and creativity with strong, grounded science and engineering practices. Across Stantec our environmental science and engineering expertise is woven into all projects—no matter the size or location.

I haven’t stopped learning since I started working as a consultant. Every project provides a unique challenge and teaches me something new.

Ward Prystay Senior Vice President, Sector Leader, Environmental Services, Energy (Canada)

We go beyond “working” with the energy industry

We are biologists, geologists, archaeologists, hydrologists, engineers, geochemists, regulatory experts, risk assessors, and toxicologists. Our roles may differ, but together we share the land and the resources we use. Our experience allows us to think of creative solutions for addressing regulatory, environmental, and community challenges in the energy industry. When our engineering and environment teams work together at the onset of a project, we can avoid resource impacts, expedite regulatory approvals, and cut project costs. We’ve found that smarter energy development flows from great ideas. Through our partnerships, industry experience, and use of technology, we’re developing new and inventive ways to solve emerging issues, meet regulations, and increase productivity. At all stages—exploration, planning, operations, closure—we work to keep your projects moving forward safely.

We bring together places that make communities feel like home

Transforming land into a residential or mixed-use community, or a public space with parks, trails, roadways, and transit requires a mix of technical skill and creative vision, as well as insight into development. We merge this expertise to create value for our clients and community. Our clients rely on us to optimize the potential of their land. Our engineers, surveyors, and environmental service experts lay the groundwork for infrastructure so a community can run smoothly. Our approach to community development forms wildlife habitat, restores wetlands for future generations, and builds communities where bicyclists ride on trails and families picnic in parks. By creating unique spaces that respond to the land and the people who use them, we’re bringing community to life.
