Azimuth is a niche consulting firm specialized in design and delivery of studies to understand the ecological and health effects of environmental contamination. These services are typically applied in the regulatory contexts of environmental impact assessment, environmental monitoring, and human health and ecological risk assessment.

Azimuth is a relatively small company of senior and intermediate level scientists. Azimuth’s Partners include one BC Contaminated Sites Approved Professionals (CSAP) Risk Assessor and two Diplomates of the American Board of Toxicology (DABT). Azimuth delivers its services from offices in Vancouver and Sidney, BC with project experience in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon Territory, and Nunavut.

For a small firm, we serve a wide range of sectors/clients, including mining, transportation, real estate, ports, government, First Nations and legal firms. Azimuth is often relied on to communicate project findings to communities, regulatory agencies, and/or stakeholders.


Azimuth is built around a shared philosophy that is demonstrated by:

  1. Our Team: Experienced professionals who like being challenged with complex problems that benefit from a good evidence base and effective communication.
  2. Our clients: Our clients reflect on Azimuth. They expect high quality service, continuity, and solutions that are scaled to the problem.
  3. Our Approach: We meet our clients’ expectations by providing senior expertise from “cradle to grave”. We are proactive. We understand the regulatory goals and build consensus through sound science and communication.


As partners in specific projects

By its very nature, Azimuth is a great teaming partner for many types of projects. Our services often complement the skill sets of other environmental consulting or engineering firms. We like working with peers from different disciplines to put together the “uber-team”.
