Welcome to Sidney

We’ve provided a home for the most creative and innovative consulting minds in the business—our team. The Coast Salish people have lived in the Sidney area since time immemorial. This rich heritage, combined with vibrant contemporary living, is why we love this place we call home.

Our deep respect for, and understanding of, our local history and environment has enriched the projects we’ve delivered and created a better experience for visitors and our community. You can see this when you arrive at the airport or ferry terminals, and when you explore our island’s hotels, resorts, and waterfront spaces.

You can also find our team in the farthest, most remote regions of our province and country, bringing sustainable resource projects to life to support our communities. Through our work and our people, we’re making our home a great place to live.
