“EDI staff have worked for me since 2010 on two different mine projects. Their work included a range of tasks from baseline biological assessments, preparing impact statements, mitigation and monitoring plans, reviewing Fisheries Act Authorizations, addressing regulator comments in writing and in person, and presenting at public hearings as an expert witness.
In 2018 I had EDI provide strategic advice and direction on completing an impact assessment and hearing presentations for an Arctic gold mine expansion. They were an essential component of the assessment leadership team and provided sound opinions and advice on approaches at competitive rates. I have always found them professional to work with.
I recommend EDI to any project proponent that needs a reliable, professional, and hassle-free discipline lead that works well within a team and knows how to communicate effectively.”Oliver Curran Vice President, Environmental Affairs TMAC Resources Inc.
“I hired EDI as the Wildlife discipline lead throughout the development and review of a recent EA, including implementation of requisite baseline work. Their team was more than proficient in all assigned tasks and advice was always sound. In a vocation where it is increasingly difficult to find good writers, it was a true pleasure to receive detailed documents that were so well written.”Max Brownhill, R.P.Bio, Senior Permitting Manager, Falkirk Resource Consultants Ltd.
“EDI provided us with sound environmental support for our recent projects, including the Sundance, Taylor, and Wartenbe Wind Projects in northeast BC. Two projects were subject to the BC Environmental Assessment process and one was in the post-certificate monitoring phase. EDI conducted and reported on wildlife, vegetation and aquatic components, coordinated a 3-year elk monitoring program, assisted with the selection of valued components, and supported the production of the project description and Application Information Requirements.
EDI staff acted professionally, responded quickly to requests and provided sound and relevant consulting advice. We would not hesitate to work with them again on our projects.” David Warner, Manager Development, EDF EN Canada Inc.
“I must say…the proposal submitted by EDI to (BC Government Ministry for an ungulate project) was excellent. Your presentation was clear and concise and most importantly to me your team best translated what I am hoping to achieve with the guide through your report template. I can see you have an understanding of the intention for the guide and the elements that are to be included. You have all made me quite happy about what is to come.”Government of British Columbia proposal recipient and project lead
