Neegan Burnside Ltd. is a majority Indigenous-owned engineering and environmental services firm committed to assisting Indigenous (First Nation, Métis and Inuit) communities, agencies and industries to meet their development and economic goals while remaining sensitive to culture, values and beliefs. Success is evident in the over 1,500 completed projects for more than the 300 Indigenous communities and agencies throughout North America. Over the years we have had many aboriginal staff working directly for us.  While some have moved on to use their skills back in their communities, tribal councils or businesses many remain an integrated part of our team.

Neegan Burnside has a corporate partnership with R.J. Burnside & Associates Limited (Burnside), a company that has been providing engineering services to Indigenous communities for over 40 years. This partnership operates under a Joint Venture concept with Indigenous and non-indigenous ownership being reciprocal between the companies to enable a seamless sharing of human resources and equipment. Through this unique structure, Neegan Burnside has the ability to draw from over 300 staff members within Burnside with professional qualifications in areas such as engineering, hydrogeology, environmental assessment and land planning.
