Through collaboration with our clients, our aim is to facilitate the integration of knowledge and skills from First Nations, local communities, governments and other archaeological and environmental data sources. We continuously strive to achieve the highest quality data to present an efficient and effective product for our clients.SAFETY
Our commitment to safety has earned us a reputation for designing workplace protocols and standards which meet and often exceed the industry minimums. Our SAFE and COR certifications for Forestry and Work Safe BC ensure that we maintain an attitude of professionalism and implement a conscientious approach to every project. Ongoing training and daily safety assessments illuminate potential hazards and create a culture of safety and injury avoidance which is paramount on all projects.COMMUNITY
It is our belief that any interdisciplinary project begins by building capacity at the community level by incorporating the needs and concerns of local planning initiatives and developments. This proactive approach mitigates any potential conflicts and facilitates the advancement of client projects within expected timeframes. It has also been Norcan’s philosophy to support community social activities and we annually contribute to local community and charitable associations.FIRST NATIONS
Facilitating sustainable and mutually beneficial relationships with First Nation communities has always been at the core of Norcan’s business model. Consequently, we consult and encourage active participation from all interested First Nation bands. We constantly endeavour to generate economic growth and participate in the transfer of skills and training opportunities in each and every project.ENVIRONMENT
Finally, our commitment to ecological stewardship has created a workplace ethic that respects the environment and its resources and makes a sustainable resource plan our first priority. As a resource-based consulting company, Norcan minimizes each project’s potential negative impact on the environment and cultural resources and fosters a conscious and compelling approach to wildlife, habitation, waterways and terrain.
