Consenting & Environment

Doing it right

When planning infrastructure projects, understanding the full impact on the environment and community is at the heart of the design. At Stantec, our teams meet regulatory requirements using the latest tools, technologies, and best-practices. Our multidisciplinary teams work together, so every project meets, or exceeds, requirements and is designed to put the community first. 

We know the value of data and have the expertise to accurately gather and interpret a range of data, from aquatic, terrestrial, and socioeconomic, through to atmospheric data to support your decision-making process. And we employ multiple innovative technologies to help you to find the information you need. 

Teams of experts are ready to assist with technical support, permitting strategy, application preparation, and environmental assessments to help get your project underway. Our strong relationships with regulatory agencies will help streamline your consenting efforts and provide effective, and reliable approaches to the approval process—helping you deliver projects that improve the places where people live, work, and play.
