  • Your Opportunity

    Our Water sector, which brings together many of the world’s top engineers and scientists, sees water a bit differently—as a single holistic system rather than as unconnected networks divided by jurisdictional boundaries. We use this perspective to help communities tap into water’s potential. Throughout the life cycle of capture, use, reuse, and discharge, our team optimizes every facet of a water system. Whether a project calls for planners, designers, construction managers, or facility operators, we have the right experts to provide creative, yet practical, water solutions. Through our cost-effective strategies, we’re helping communities increase their water efficiency and protect their water resources for future generations.


    The Ecosystems Team at Stantec is dedicated to managing environmental issues professionally and pro-actively. Our aquatics team contributes to threatened and endangered species surveys, fisheries assessments, fish habitat evaluation, fish passage design, water quality assessments and monitoring, effluent release monitoring, sediment and biota sampling, risk and mitigation assessment, technical assessments, ecological restoration, protection planning and environmental mitigation, environmental monitoring, and environmental assessments. We are seeking exceptionally talented and enthusiastic individuals to join our team and advance their career.
