Creativity and innovation are our passion
Creativity is driven by purpose. Our aim is to transform, and that inspires us to approach every project with a fresh perspective. By focusing on collaboration and prioritizing inventiveness, Stantec teams bring big ideas to life through creative solutions.
Every project has distinct needs; discovering and embracing those differences fuels our creativity and drives our designs. We listen to our clients and communities, searching out their unique needs and circumstances and incorporating them into our solutions to achieve tailored, lasting, positive results.
Taking advantage of our global network, we build a targeted team for every project and call on diverse perspectives to create something extraordinary. When we work together, no problem is too large or too complex.
Whether Stantec’s contribution is a design that strikes the perfect balance between function and aesthetics, a feat of engineering that redefines what’s possible, or a project management approach that delivers results, we strive for outcomes that transcend the challenges they solve. We work to shape the communities we serve for the better. Creatively.

Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk HighwayIn the tundra of Northern Canada, up to 80% of the soil is ice. And even though the ground is hard when frozen, it becomes remarkably fragile when melted. Now imagine designing and constructing a highway across this frozen land. The Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway (ITH)—a two-lane, all-season, 140-kilometre (87-mile) highway—is the first permanent roadway to connect southern Canada across the tundra to the Arctic Ocean. However, without careful and creative design, construction would permanently damage the sensitive environment.
Digging into our optionsIn the years leading up to the construction, we worked with the Northwest Territories Department of Transportation and Inuvialuit-owned KAVIK-Stantec (one of our Indigenous partnerships) to identify potential borrow sources. The investigations were spread out over time and location to limit environmental impacts. Read More
An environmental and national accomplishmentThe award-winning highway runs over both arctic tundra and boreal forest—some of the most rugged terrain in Canada and some of the most sensitive. Our environmental services teams worked on rare plant, hydrotechnical, and archaeological impact reviews, terrain and permafrost mapping, mitigation and reclamation planning, numerous assessments, and more. The result? An extension to the national highway system that reaches the Arctic Ocean. It’s as momentous as finishing the railroad—connecting Canada from coast to coast to coast.
