Environmental Consulting in Canada
Due to growing recognition of climate change and environmental damage, environmental consulting has become a lucrative business. Operators in the Environmental Consulting industry in Canada assist other companies to reduce the damage caused by their operations to surrounding environments. Most notably, this includes the provision of environmental assessments, audits, natural resource and waste management, environmental policy development and assistance with licences and permits. Unfortunately for environmental consultants, revenue has been hampered during the latter half of the five-year period as low commodity prices deterred new investment among businesses in the oil and gas, mining and power sectors.Over the five years to 2022, environmental consultants will continue to face challenging conditions. Ongoing fears of a property bubble, compounded by historically high levels of household debt, are expected to limit growth in construction.
Operators in this industry provide advice to businesses and the federal government on environmental issues, such as the control of environmental contamination from pollutants, toxic substances and hazardous materials. Environmental consultants identify problems, measure and evaluate risks and recommend solutions. The industry employs a multidisciplined staff of scientists, engineers and other technicians.
