We like being challenged with complex problems needing innovation, technical expertise and strong communication.
Azimuth was created in 2001 as a group of senior scientists that can deliver technical expertise and value to our clients. Azimuth has corporate offices in Vancouver and Sidney, BC. We have project experience in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon Territory, and Nunavut.
Our team’s collective backgrounds span biology, ecology, toxicology and chemistry, and among our senior staff we have a Contaminated Sites Approved Professionals Society (CSAP) – Risk Approved Professional, two Diplomates of the American Board of Toxicology (DABT), registered Professional Biologists (BC, AB) and a Qualified Person (SK). For a small firm, we have extensive experience in contaminated site assessment, risk management, impact assessment, ecological and human health risk assessment, and environmental effects monitoring. Our staff have been involved in developing various risk assessment guidance documents (both provincial and federal) providing us with valuable insight into the regulatory frameworks applicable to our client’s projects.
Given our strength in science policy and risk communication, Azimuth is often relied on to engage with communities, listen, and reflect project findings to the public, regulatory agencies, Indigenous organizations/communities and stakeholders. As a result of our adherence to good science Azimuth has built a solid reputation within the environmental industry.
