EDI Environmental Dynamics Inc. is very excited to announce the opening of a new office in Smithers, BC. Anne MacLeod, a senior biologist and project manager at EDI, is the primary contact for this new location. Anne grew up in Houston, BC, and is happy about moving to nearby Smithers, after living in Whitehorse, YT, for the past 10 years where she worked at EDI. “I’ve worked in Smithers before and I’m excited about returning and reconnecting with family, friends, and people I’ve worked with previously.”
Smithers is a town of about 5,000 people, nestled in the Bulkley Valley of northwest BC, that provides services to a similar number of people in the region beyond the town. “Smithers is a great location for an environmental consulting business,” explains Anne. “In northwest BC, we have mining, transportation, including rail and highways, agriculture, Indigenous communities, government agencies, tourism, and a bit of forestry. Quite a few biologists live in Smithers, so we have local knowledge and experience that can be called on to support a growing business. And given our location, we can bring in EDI team members from both Prince George and Whitehorse to help with projects, if need be.”
We acknowledge this new EDI location is within the traditional territory of the Wet’suwet’en people, who have been living in the area surrounding Smithers for thousands of years. Based on EDI’s guiding principles, our work is focused on respectful knowledge sharing and building mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with Indigenous peoples, communities, and businesses.
