Environmental Planning

Effective planning and public consultation creates the understanding communities need and the support decision-makers want. Communication with the client and within the project team is critical. Our approach is guided by four principles:

  1. Create equitable participation
  2. Explore differing perspectives
  3. Generate opportunities to develop mutual respect
  4. Encourage thinking outside the box  

Associated Environmental Consultants has dedicated teams across Canada that provide the specific skills to manage group dynamics and the decision process. Risk is inherent in all types of communication and can arise through all project phases, but but our environmental planning experts provide a cost-effective means to manage information, reduce risk, and achieve balanced decisions.

    • Being active outside, good food and company make me happy. I enjoy skiing, running, walking, biking and camping with the family, dog, and friends, and traveling to my native Europe.
