Indigenous Engagement and Traditional Resource Assessment
We are a local indigenous-owned company that pride ourselves on meaningful engagement and ensuring that the traditional knowledge gained is integrated into mitigation planning and the ongoing protection of traditional resources. Our everyday attitude of open and transparent communication facilitates relationship building with local communities, ultimately leading to project success for all stakeholders. Our goal is the integration of communities into the projects we are working on and facilitating input into planning and assessment. Our integration into the communities where we work starts with up front engagement and continues through the assessment phase into environmental monitoring during construction and ongoing operations. If desired, this also allows us to help the communities identify and create opportunity for work and ongoing careers within the environmental field.
Our assessment services include:
We have ECO Canada certified BEAHR Indigenous Training Program instructors, which help local First Nations and Metis communities develop environmental competencies by providing introductory skills to those who want to start a career in the environmental field. Our goal is facilitating training and employment in the environmental field in the communities where we work. This goal is achieved through being adaptive to the community and blending ecological and local knowledge with practical field experience. The key to program success is the ongoing mentorship provided by our multidisciplinary team once trainees start their employment in the environmental field.
