Using science to meet regulations

Need to meet regulatory requirements? We work with you to prepare permit applications and environmental assessments that obtain the information you need. We also provide permitting strategy, environmental assessment and application preparation, and technical support for projects that require municipal, provincial/state, and federal environmental approvals and licenses. Solid, defensible applications need to be supported by data. We collect and interpret the data required to support your project.

Helping our clients and communities navigate the ever evolving complexities of environmental regulation to improve tomorrow.

Trevor Macenski Senior Principal, Environmental Services

Taking the guess-work out of regulations

Our Fisheries group has created the Fish and Fish Habitat Impact Assessment Tool to help navigate regulatory requirements, and to help protect our lakes and rivers.

Environmental permitting doesn’t need to be a roadblock in your project’s development. Early identification of constraints, client goals, regulatory agency needs, and stakeholder issues allows us to address problems before they can knock a project off course. We have excellent working relationships with regulatory agencies, which helps us streamline the permitting effort and create effective approaches to regulatory approvals. Our in-house experts across the globe collect and analyze atmospheric, aquatic, terrestrial, and socioeconomic data to support assessment and permitting efforts to help keep your project moving forward.
We help you navigate complex regulatory environments to move your projects forward.
