  • At year’s end, WaterTAP introduced the GREENLAND® Group to a Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) team developing an Indigenous Youth Program at the Bolton Camp in Caledon, Ontario. GREENLAND® will provide financial assistance for a new internship program. Since 2016, Urban Watershed Group Limited (GREENLAND® Group affiliate) has served as the engineer-of-record for the Bolton Camp development design team led by LGA Architectural Partners. The attached project profile outlines work now completed by the GREENLAND® Group affiliate, Urban Watershed Group.​
The idea for the Youth Program was developed by TRCA, Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, University of Toronto, and with support from Ryerson University. The Program will explore a participatory model for practice that includes the voices of Indigenous Youth and Elders/Traditional Knowledge Keepers (TKK) in planning and designing for green infrastructure. This initiative is motivated by the need to address a lack of Indigenous people in green infrastructure work; integrate Indigenous themes of respect, relationship, reciprocity, responsibility into planning and design; and, address a growing intergenerational gap on traditional environmental knowledge. The new 2018 summer internship program will connect Indigenous youth with Elders/TKK on the land while they learn new ideas and skills in an engaging way (with visiting mentors) and to encourage them to consider career opportunities in green infrastructure. A documentary filmmaker (preferable Indigenous) will be hired to teach the youth about film making and as a storytelling exercise about the experience. The youth and Elders/TKK will also be invited to drop in to participate in winter term graduate courses on green infrastructure being taught at the University of Toronto and Ryerson University, with visits to project sites to look for opportunities for green infrastructure, Indigenous place-making, and interpretive walking tours to celebrate natural and cultural history.
For many years, GREENLAND® has financially supported (and participated in) environmental stewardship and education partnerships with Canada’s First Nations and Métis Nations. This includes the BEAHR (ECO Canada) Aboriginal Training Program and curriculum programs offered by the Anishinabek Educational Institute.

Credit Valley Conservation

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your work on the Brampton “Pond 10 Floating Islands Research Project”. This project was a “first of its kind” within our watershed.

Greenland was responsible for preparing the design brief for the islands that provided details on the anchoring system design, safety considerations and a strategy for establishing a vegetation community among other things. This was a challenging project given that there was no pre-established process to follow and therefore we were defining the design and implementation process from scratch.

Greenland was always very responsive when issues arose and helped us troubleshoot options to solve the issue. They refined the design brief and assisted CVC with implementing improved anchor designs that have been successful in keeping the islands stable over the past few years even though some extreme weather events.

We were very pleased with the consulting services Greenland provided for this project.

Check out this (Greenland) video of THREATS (an open-source cumulative effects assessment tool to help direct environmental management (industrial or other)) and/or planning of future projects. It enables the compiling and juxtaposition of public environmental data (including, but not limited to, wildlife use areas and environmental quality data) with on-site or "targeted" environmental data. For security, the provision to include data protected behind a firewall exists to enable analysis and comparison of potentially sensitive data in the context of other datasets. The goal here is to allow for predictive capability and in turn mitigate potential effects. Equally, this provides a capacity to enable retroactive assessment (investigation of cause) of observed changes. The ability to spatially interpret stressor/pathway/receptor data, and conduct analyses within the tool, while retaining data in its original database (secure) is what is truly unique here. Excited to see what can be achieved with this powerful platform in areas where it has already begun to be used!
