Do you need an Environmental Engineering Firm in Ontario?
For people in Ontario who own property, an environmental engineer or environmental consultant can be a great resource. They’re the best source of information and assistance when managing challenging environmental issues that arise on your site.
If you are changing the use of your site to a more sensitive land use (going from commercial to residential, for example) or completing a property transaction, you may need an environmental site assessment (ESA) or record of site condition (RSC). This is a document issued by the Ministry of the Environment that certifies that your site meets certain environmental criteria. It can protect you from environmental liability.
An RSC (and many other environmental reports) requires the input of an environmental engineer– more specifically, a Qualified Person (QP) under O. Reg. 153/04.
It can be challenging to find an environmental engineering firm (which provides consulting services) that will be a good fit for your project’s unique requirements. To choose an Ontario environmental consultant:
- Begin by identifying your needs – what do you require at the end of the process?
- Next, identify the type of firm that you would like to work with. Generally, small firms can offer more customized solutions to the challenges you face on your site, and may be more responsive than a larger firm.
- Finally, ask for recommendations. Your realtor, environmental lawyer, or bank may have suggestions of firms that have provided quality services in the past.
