Commitment to Reconciliation

EDI Environmental Dynamics Inc. (EDI) values and respects Indigenous Peoples, their culture, and their connection to the land. The success of Indigenous Peoples in Canada is a foundational component of EDI’s ethic, and we work to apply our experience, passion, and skills to collaborate and learn with Indigenous communities in the areas where we live and work. EDI has been working with Indigenous communities for almost three decades to create mutually- beneficial economic opportunities.

EDI believes meaningful Indigenous involvement in economic development is essential for everyone’s economic, social, and environmental well-being. This document outlines our efforts towards reconciliation, including respectful knowledge sharing and relationships between our team and Indigenous Peoples.
