Chief Strategy Officer, CIMA+
Canada is built by engineering firms, yet Canadians are rarely aware of the companies behind the projects that shape our world.
When a new renewable power generator is brought online in a rural area or the mass transit infrastructure of a major city is modernized, electrified, and made more sustainable, Canada gets stronger.
Behind every one of these projects is one or more engineering firms, and each brings a different philosophy and a unique set of strengths to the table. To build the best future for our children and grandchildren, we must become familiar with the people engineering that future.
Engineering for future generations
As engineers, we have the power to educate our clients and influence the way they build their response to the challenges they face,” says Steeve Fiset, Chief Strategy Officer at employee-owned engineering firm CIMA+. “This is where we can have the biggest impact — by proposing to our clients to do things differently in ways that may not even be more expensive, but that are more responsible toward the environment or toward the ESG framework. I think the most powerful aspect of our strategy is engineering for future generations.”
As engineers, we have the power to educate.
CIMA+ is an established company with more than three decades of experience and a persistent focus on social responsibility and sustainability. A well-known player in its home province of Quebec, the reach of CIMA+ extends nationwide with more than 2,800 employees in 30 offices across Canada. You’re certainly aware of the company’s ongoing projects, whether it’s the West Calgary Ring Road, the Green Line and Valley Line West LRTs in Calgary and Edmonton, or the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Hospital in the province of Quebec.
As we continue to refine our vision of a sustainable and equitable future for Canada, we must remember that every new project represents an opportunity to align the country we are actually building with the country we want to have. Choosing an engineering firm with the right experience and the right philosophy makes all the difference.
