Regulatory Authorizations

Are you navigating the challenges of environmental permits and authorizations? Associated helps our clients complete their projects in a timely, cost-effective, and environmentally responsible manner. Our combination of strong regulatory knowledge, practical experience, and relationships with government staff enables us to provide sound advice and minimize delays. 

Associated’s regulatory expertise includes federal (e.g. Fisheries Act, Species at Risk Act, Canadian Environmental Assessment Act), provincial (e.g. water, waste discharge, and contaminated sites regulations), and local (e.g. riparian set-back) statutes. We also assist clients to develop regulatory compliance programs for specific construction projects, or as part of a comprehensive Environmental Management System.

    • I am fortunate to get involved in many types of projects, from senior reviews of municipal projects to wetlands policies and emerging issues to stakeholder consultation. I have a passion for learning and for making a difference.

    • When not working, I enjoy running (10 km to marathons), and golfing for pleasure and competition, and participating in charity fundraising and events. I also love travelling, photography, and gardening.
