Client Testimonials

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

In March of 2013, Greenland International Consulting Ltd. completed a study for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to estimate nutrient loading in small catchment of about 177 square kilometers in the La Salle River watershed in southern Manitoba using the CANWET 4 model. Given uncertainties in some input data and model parameters, the preliminary results using the CANWET 4 model for baseline conditions of stream discharge, nutrient concentrations and loads were satisfactory in our project team as simulated values were within the range of observed values during the validation period.

This study suggests the CANWET 4 modeling approach could be used to predict changes to nutrient loads from changing land use scenarios in watersheds of this region.

Municipality of Meaford

Re: Reference Letter

The municipality of Meaford has worked very closely with Greenland International Consulting Ltd. on a number of projects over the past few years. Some of these projects include the development of a master plan for property along the Bighead River in Meaford as well as the development of accessibility ramp in the urban core. Their visioning and attention to detail is some of the best I have ever worked with. Their willingness to communicate with staff and implement comments through public cosultation sessions makes the entire process flawless. I would highly recommend the services of Greenland International Consulting for any future planning projects.

Corporation of the Town of Collingwood (Canada)

On behalf of Council and the residents of Collingwood, I want to thank you for generously giving your time, expertise and experience to our community to assist Town staff in addressing the water capacity issues at the Raymond A. Barker Water Treatment Plant (WTP).

Since becoming aware of the capacity issues this spring and then implementing an Interim Control By-Law, this issue has been the top priority of Council. Your input and contribution on proactive measures to mitigate the summer/winter capacity differential and to increase the WTP capacity pending the completion of the expansion have been of great benefit to Council and to staff. As a result of your input, Council directed staff to include the option of UV Disinfection retrofit to the existing WTP as part of the expansion design RFP process and we are optimistic this will be done.

Thank you for your personal and professional commitment to our community, it is impactful and very much appreciated by myself and my Council colleagues.

Yours very truly,

Bruan Saunderson
