Hopefully everyone had a great October and a very scary Halloween! With November in full swing, every day without snow is a wonderful day. North Shore’s operational management team would like to take the time to recognize a few of the exceptional jobs completed last month. For October we would like to recognize:

Jaden Kapiniak                                                                                       

In October, Jaden supervised a unique reclamation project on a remote location. The work was completed with heli-portable equipment and Jaden supervised the bulk of the work for North Shore. Jaden ensured North Shore and the client’s safety programs were adhered to and the scope of work was fulfilled all with a positive attitude and friendly demeanor. Jaden also took on some tree planting work while on site and was able to transplant 50 trees (by hand!) that had encroached on the lease edges to the middle of the site to give revegetation efforts a leg up before the site will be tree planted in the summer of 2022. Both our client and the contractors working with Jaden on site had high praise for the job Jaden did out there. Great work Jaden!

Kayle Watson

Kayle has been with North Shore for several years now and is a strong leader within the Remediation/Reclamation group. Kayle oversees some of North Shore’s larger reclamation portfolios, including Oil Sands Exploration programs, as well as conventional oil and gas programs. Kayle’s dedication, attention to detail, organizational skills, and ability to keep a level head have allowed her to excel with these high volume and ever changing programs. Thank you Kayle for all your efforts over the last month!

Derek Morris

Derek’s work ethic and ability to meet client’s expectations has paid off in spades over the last few months. Through existing client referrals, Derek has been able to bring on another client in Saskatchewan and a healthy planned workload throughout 2022. Derek’s hard work and high-quality reporting was so impressive that he had the clients talking! Excellent Job Derek and thank you for representing North Shore so well as part of our Saskatchewan operations.

Congratulations to these three individuals! North Shore would like to thank all its staff for their hard work and contributions throughout the busy fall season. We are an organization defined by the very people who work here, and we are an organization that we are very proud of.

With the crisp morning air and beautiful fall colours marking the end of summer, North Shore’s operational management team would like to take a moment to recognize some individuals for their exceptional contributions and efforts. This month, the following individuals are being recognized:

Providence Abananatwe                                                                     

Providence joined North Shore earlier on this year and has stepped forward in the accounting group during a time where we are experiencing significant invoicing volume and demands.  Providence has taken on doing some of our more complicated invoicing tasks and her volume and proficiency in getting these tasks completed has noticeably improved over that period.  Providence has taken on increased responsibility and has provided additional guidance for others in the group.  We are fortunate to have her and her determination at this very busy time. Great work Providence!

Logan Beaumont

Logan will be celebrating his 5 year anniversary with North Shore in the next few months. Over the last couple of years, Logan has been integral to the success of one of North Shore’s larger remediation/reclamation programs in central Alberta. Logan’s reclamation experience has been a tremendous asset to these programs and his communication skills have gone a long way in developing and maintaining relationships with landowners, occupants, contractors, and other affected stakeholders. More recently, Logan has taken the initiative in passing on his skills and experience in a training and mentorship role with some of the company’s junior staff. By doing so, Logan has become a valued senior leader within North Shore’s organization and is highly regarded by all of those that work with him. Congratulations to Logan on a job well done!

Laura Fletcher

Laura is one of North Shore’s seasoned veterans, having spent almost 11 years with the company. Over this time, Laura has had several roles in both the field and the office working with North Shore’s remediation/reclamation and biophysical teams. Regardless of the type of project, Laura always approaches her work with an enthusiastic attitude and can be relied upon for her quality and attention to detail. Laura’s wealth of experience and diverse skillset is always valued. Doing all of this while caring for her young family and sustaining a farm makes it that much more impressive. We are extremely grateful to have Laura as part of the North Shore family and would like to extend a big thank you for her years of dedication and hard work.

Congratulations to these three individuals! North Shore would like to thank all its staff for their hard work and contributions throughout the very busy summer season. As an organization defined by its people and collaborative expertise, we continue to be successful in our project execution and overall business operations. We wish everyone a wonderful fall season and with a little luck, hopefully we can avoid the dreaded “S” word for as long as we can.

It’s certainly beginning to feel like fall, isn’t it? As North Shore continues to push through what’s remaining of our summer season, the operational management team would like to take a moment to recognize some individuals for their exceptional contributions and efforts. This month, the following individuals are being recognized:

Lauren Gore-Hickman                                                                          

Lauren started with North Shore early this spring and was immediately exposed to North Shore’s fast paced field assessment season. With a positive attitude and willingness to take on new challenges, Lauren found herself covering many areas of northeastern Alberta over the summer as part of North Shore’s numerous Oil Sands Exploration (OSE) assessment and reclamation programs. With her keen ability to adapt and multi-task, Lauren has been key to ensuring safe and efficient project work is completed. Awesome job Lauren and thank you for all your hard work!

Matt Henry

After a prior career in the trades, Matt joined North Shore as a new grad in the environmental field earlier this season. Matt has been supporting North Shore’s fugitive emissions projects and through his ability to quickly learn and understand tasks and processes, he has become a significant asset to North Shore’s Air and Regulatory Division. Over the past month, Matt has been vital for project completion and has taken the initiative to shoulder responsibilities on his own to meet various deliverables. Despite some long days and a steep learning curve, Matt always maintains a positive attitude and has been dedicated to ensuring projects are completed to client expectations. Terrific work Matt and it’s great to have you as part of the North Shore team!

Ashley Rudachyk

Ashley is based out of North Shore’s Regina office (Go Riders!) and over the course of the field season has been exposed to many different projects throughout Saskatchewan and Alberta. Whether she is assessing pipeline integrity dig disturbances, completing Phase 2 ESA’s, initiating chemical vegetation control programs, or overseeing construction activities, Ashley always seems to take things in stride and is more than happy to take on responsibility and ensure the work gets done. A big thank you to Ashley for all her hard work and dedication! 

Teresa Rosales

Teresa has been responsible for North Shore’s corporate equipment management as well as administrative duties in the Sherwood Park office. Since coming on board, Teresa has transformed the Sherwood Park offices and bays into a very organized and user friendly space. So much so, that numerous staff have commented on the night and day difference of our work space. Aside from organizational talents, Teresa has also managed to ensure that field staff have what they need and when they need it during this very busy field season. Thank you Teresa for your maintenance and continuous improvement to all of North Shore’s day to day needs that are often overlooked. It has certainly not gone unnoticed!

Congratulations to these four individuals! North Shore would like to thank all its staff for their hard work and contributions over the last few months. As we come into the fall season, we understand that the race is on to finish up many of our planned summer projects. North Shore is very fortunate to have such a wonderful group of professionals all working as a team and contributing to its continued success.

As we mark the approximate halfway point of the summer season, North Shore’s operational management team would like to take a moment to recognize some individuals for their outstanding contributions and efforts.

This month, the following individuals are being recognized:

Jon Yasinski                                                                                             

Jon joined North Shore’s Spill Division in May 2021 and is based out of Whitecourt, Alberta. Even through the challenges of working remotely, Jon was able to integrate himself quickly into the company and has fit in well with the Spill Team personnel. He has also shown to be a real team player, supporting on both Biophysical and Remediation/Reclamation projects whenever possible. Most recently, Jon has shown great initiative and has done an incredible job of helping to further develop North Shore’s aquatics capabilities; he was instrumental in getting North Shore approved as a Qualified Service Provider under Alberta’s Roadway and Watercourse Crossing Program. Awesome work Jon! It’s great to have you as a part of the North Shore team!

Derek Morris

As a seasoned veteran of fast-paced and variable project types, Derek has been an integral leader of North Shore’s Saskatchewan operations. Unless he’s busy cheering for the Roughriders on game day, Derek can always be counted on to get projects completed safely, and to the client’s satisfaction. Derek has done an excellent job this summer ensuring some of North Shore’s large municipal projects were completed without any significant delays (despite the weather), and his resourcefulness and personal dedication saw these projects through. Awesome work Derek! Your dedication and expertise have certainly not gone unnoticed!

Dylon Lakevold

Dylon has only been with us for a few months, but in that time he has settled in nicely as a member of the North Shore team, as well as impressed his fellow colleagues. Dylon is a quick learner and readily accepts new tasks and challenges in stride. In his short time with us, Dylon has been exposed to various assessment, reclamation, and vegetation management projects throughout Alberta. Currently, Dylon is tackling a large volume of site visits in the far reaches of northern Alberta as part of an Area Based Closure program. His resourcefulness, organizational skills, and safety conscious attitude have resulted in a smooth start to the program, and he is already receiving praise from both the client and his supervisors alike. Dylon has been a great addition to the North Shore team. Good job Dylon – keep up the great work!

Congratulations to these three individuals! North Shore would like to thank all of its staff for their hard work and contributions over the last few months. We wish everyone a safe and productive August and we hope everyone has the opportunity to take advantage of the warm summer weather and what’s left of the summer season!

Heather Hutton                                                                                      

Heather has a unique creativity, positive attitude, and is always wearing a smile. She is very approachable, which makes her a great communicator when collaborating with staff of all levels. With over a decade of Reclamation and Remediation experience, Heather has developed into a well-rounded consultant with a keen interest in site closure.

She has consistently proven that she can be relied upon to help ensure the success of client programs, and she has become integral member of the team. Thank you Heather for all your hard work, attention to detail, and dedication!

Coel Bazinet

Coel started with North Shore in July 2020, in the midst of our busy summer field season. Coel picked things up quickly and naturally engrained himself as part of the North Shore team. Since then, Coel has become an instrumental member of North Shore’s Remediation/Reclamation team. He quickly picks up new skills, can be relied upon to complete quality field work, and doesn’t shy away from some long days and complicated projects. Thank you for your contributions and dedication Coel!

Emily Harrison

Emily is an invaluable member of North Shore’s Biophysical team and has been an amazing team player when it comes to supporting other groups with their biophysical related needs and questions. Over the past few months, Emily has been actively pushing North Shore’s core value of ‘Innovation’ and has done an incredible job in helping to develop and improve North Shore’s field data collection and management processes. She has also emerged as a leader in conducting training sessions and presentations for these improvements, as well as in her other day-to-day duties. Awesome work Emily!
