The Canadian Environmental and Engineering Executives Conference (CE3C), a premier event in the Canadian environmental engineering and consulting sector, successfully convened in Vancouver on January 24th and 25th.
This exclusive gathering serves as a vital platform for C-suite executives from top-tier firms like Stantec, Worley, Mott MacDonald, AECOM, WSP, and ERM, among others. These industry leaders engaged in in-depth discussions, sharing their expertise on financial strategies, market trends, operational challenges, and the latest technological innovations.
The conference’s structure facilitates not only the exchange of valuable insights but also fosters an environment conducive to collaborative problem-solving. A unique feature of this year’s CE3C was the highly anticipated “Keynote Forum.” This forum showcased distinguished speakers Michael Campbell, the host of Canada’s top rated syndicated financial radio show MoneyTalks, and Nik Nanos, chief data scientist and founder of Nanos Research Corporation, who provided critical analysis on the economic and political dynamics shaping Canadian business landscapes.
Additionally, the event included an informative survey where executives shared key data, enabling participants to benchmark their companies against industry standards in financial and human resource aspects. The actionable insights gleaned from these panel sessions and the survey are invaluable tools for executives aiming to elevate their organizations’ performance and strategic positioning.
Panel presentations and workshops included the following:
- Role of Private Equity in the Environmental Engineering Consulting (EEC) Sector
- Corporate Risk Management for Environmental Engineers
- Navigating the Integration Maze: Successful Mergers and Acquisitions in a Dynamic Environment
- Pioneering the Future: Innovating Environmental and Engineering Consulting
- Strategic Business Development: Identifying and Pursuing High-Value Opportunities

Kate Branch, a director and senior engineer with Core6 Environmental Ltd. in Vancouver (and an Advisory Board member with Environment Journal), has been attending the conference since 2018.
“What I appreciate is that the conference has a great blend of timely topics that are of interest to corporate executives whether they are part of a small entrepreneurial company or a large multinational conglomerate,” says Branch. “I find myself putting my phone away and taking the opportunity to listen, learn and engage with other executives. The connections made extend well past the two day conference and I come back to the office with notes to distill and ideas on how to apply what I’ve learned here at Core6.”
Next year’s event, to be held on January 29th and 30th, is already in the planning stages.
