Environmental Assessments / REA

MKI works with clients and regulators to ensure fast and efficient environmental assessments.

The ideal environmental assessment is the one that works in tandem with project planning to create the best possible project from the outset. From the initial constraints evaluation and mapping, through to the detailed analysis of any unavoidable impacts and required mitigations, MKI’s experienced engineers, biologists and project managers can ensure that environmental assessments are conducted so as to inform project decisions at every stage. We have wide experience in provincial Environmental Assessments in Ontario (including the new REA process), Nova Scotia and PEI, as well as the Canadian EA process. MKI is well positioned to guide clients through what can be a confusing and challenging undertaking.

MKI has developed good working relationships with all regulators, allowing us to produce defensible, efficient and cost-effective site investigation protocols for a wide variety of site types, from active agricultural to untouched forest.
