First Nations

Associated provides a full range of planning, engineering, hydrogeological, and environmental services to support the First Nations communities and government.  We work closely with our First Nations clients.  We listen to understand community needs and specific project requirements, and collaborate with project leaders and elders to ensure successful project delivery.

Complementing our community understanding, we have strong relationships with Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and understand their standards and requirements for project funding.

    • I started working with the First Nations in 2005. I do not think I would still be an engineer if I was not working with the First Nations. Our clients give me focus and drive.  I want there to be a positive legacy for our projects.
    • My family keep me grounded. Spending time with them brings me the greatest joy. You will find us on a hill (skiing/mountain biking), making our path through the woods, in a tent, swimming in a lake, or out exploring the Pacific Northwest (cities and parks).
