For 30 years, our unique Small – Medium Enterprise Collaborative brand has thrived to provide ecosystem goods and services on many landmark projects.

We also strive to identify sustainable urban development solutions with a conservationist ethic. These incorporate evidence-based science; open source code and Internet-based data decision support systems; and, with adaptive (real-time) technologies that can address global climate change concerns (and opportunities).

Finally, for more than 15,000 years, Canada’s First Nations walked upon, and cared for the lands our head office calls home: namely, the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Ojibwe Nations, and many others who cared for their families and communities, the way we now seek to care for ours and operate our local & international business. Collingwood acknowledges the Lake Simcoe-Nottawasaga Treaty of 1818 and respects all Nation-to-Nation agreements that have formed relationships with the original inhabitants of Turtle Island. This includes the reality of our shared history, as well as past and current contributions of Indigenous People within our community. As a business, our employees and management team seek to continue empowering expressions of pride amongst all of the diverse stakeholders in our region. We also seek to do better, to continue to recognize, learn, and grow, in friendship and community, Nation-to-Nation.

Town of Innisfil

Re: Erosion Control and Advanced Sedimentation Pilot Project
 
On behalf of the Town of Innisfil, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Greenland International Consulting Ltd. for their excellent work in completing the Erosion Control and Advanced Sedimentation Pilot Project for the Town of Innisfil, funded in part by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. This project is a first step in broad-scale implementation of innovative stormwater management technologies in the Lake Simcoe Watershed to address on-going phosphorus and sediment concerns within the Lake.

Over the course of the three-year pilot project, Greenland studied the effectiveness of the Clearflow Group’s Advanced Sedimentation Technologies at an active development site in Innisfil. The project analyzed the performance of Clearflow’s Gel Flocculant Blocks and Treated Geo-Jute at removing fine sediments and nutrients at three stormwater management facilities that discharge to Lake Simcoe. These particles, and the associated nutrients and heavy metals, are traditionally not being removed by conventional stormwater management facilities and cause negative impacts downstream. The results of the project will help Innisfil and other municipalities and agencies to reduce sediment load from entering the environment as a result of construction activities.
 
As the lead consultant, Greenland coordinated with the Town staff, contractors, sub-consultants and the developer to ensure that open lines of communication were maintained and questions and issues raised were responded to promptly. The Greenland Team’s level of professionalism and thoroughness over the course of the project was valued by the Town.

We are pleased to write in full support of the Canada-Europe Partnership, particularly the collaboration of the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) and the
Partners for Action (P4A) network to support incorporation of climate change considerations in the project and assist in testing FLOODVIEW with Canadian municipalities and insurers.
 
P4A and IC3 are dedicated to consideration of climate change in Canada’s approach to flood risk management, and dissemination of knowledge and best practices to the insurance industry, government decision-makers, and the Canadian public. We look forward to partnering with you to identify effective solutions to minimize urban flooding.

The City of Waterloo

As a Senior Project Engineer (Water Resources) for the City of Waterloo, I would like to extend my appreciation to Greenland Consulting Engineers for providing exemplary EA planning, design, contract administration and construction inspection services for the Pond #53 Sediment Removal/Reuse and Retrofit Project.
 
This project was an important undertaking for the City which consisted of: the removal of 360m3 of sediment for reuse in a City owned boulevard area; removal of all additional sediment (approx. 3,000m3) from the SWMF permanent pool and forebay area to improve its operation, implementation of the retrofit design including improved maintenance access and proactive management of many unforeseen conditions throughout the duration of the project. This project also included significant logistical challenges with respect to the coordination of public access for area residents and businesses, and providing workable solutions to implementing the design as intended due to challenging unforseen site constraints.

As the Design Consultant, Contract Administrator and on-site Construction Inspector, Greenland always maintained open lines of communication between the City, Contractor and the affected residents, and promptly responded to all questions and issues raised by the Contractor, the City and the public. Greenland’s attention to detail throughout the entire duration of this assignment helped ensure the project was completed as required.
