Impact Assessment & Community Engagement

Impact Assessment & Community Engagement

Thorough assessment and mitigation of environmental and social impacts and effective community consultation ensure that our projects deliver the maximum benefit for all stakeholders.

As a full-service engineering, construction and operations firm, we provide solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of our clients, governments and communities. With multi-disciplinary services available within a single firm, SNC-Lavalin is a valuable and knowledgeable partner in the development of even the most challenging projects. 

Our Impact Assessment & Community Engagement group has extensive local and global experience in all project phases, from planning and feasibility studies through facility approvals and permitting to construction environmental management. 

Meeting social, environmental and regulatory requirements 

Meaningful collective consultation is the best way of obtaining social acceptability and developing solutions that will benefit communities for generations to come. We work collaboratively with governments, industries, communities, Aboriginal and Indigenous populations to make sure their voices are heard and their needs are accounted for. These diverse interests are carefully considered as part of our approach to managing the environmental, social and economic dimensions of major projects.
