WEA has a strong history of project delivery in Manitoba and Ontario.

Research systems, technical reviews, gap analysis, consultation models, and policy audits are all tools of our work. Supporting informed decision-making for management of public lands and waters is central to our technical work.
Clients include companies, stakeholders, environmental organizations, industry associations, and Aboriginal communities who share our passion for the future of Canada's lands and waters. Scope for our services may be specific to Manitoba, Ontario, Canada, or continental. Environmental policies and methods regarding: climate change, water quality, sustainable forestry, lands planning and impacts from developments are among challenges our team accepts.
WEA provides customized training services for community clients based on identified capacity building needs and programming.
Unique products from our work are often cited as models. Manitoba's Mining Sector Protected Areas consultation, Manitoba's First Nations Protected Areas MOU, Poplar River First Nation Lands Management Plan are all examples of processes and tools where our participation and contributions are essential to the final outcome for Manitoba's lands and waters.
