At Stantec, we approach every water and natural resource project we undertake—whether at the local, regional, or watershed level— thoughtfully, and execute it with excellence across all project phases. We partner with our clients to design fit-for-purpose solutions that address their communities’ unique needs throughout the water infrastructure lifecycle. Our experts lead their fields and guide our work with scientific rigor, an innovative spirit, and a vision for growth.

Your Opportunity

Our Water sector brings together many of the world’s top engineer’s scientists and planners who see water a bit differently. Our teams view each project they undertake as an integral component of a wholistic system. We use this approach to provide our clients with comprehensive solutions that address the challenges, and sometimes differing priorities, that come with this valuable resource. Whether a project’s objective is to: control and use water; improve its quality and habitat potential; or, protect our communities from its natural variability; our teams take a multi-disciplinary approach that integrates and optimizes every facet of design for the natural system. We’re helping communities increase their resiliency during flood conditions and protecting the water resources of our environment for future generations to enjoy.
