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 love getting to know a water system really well, then seeking ways to improve its performance, especially for smaller systems where I can interact with the people who will be drinking the water.
    • I’m happiest when I am outdoors, hiking, birding, biking, or spending time with my family at our cabin in the Rockies.
