Indigenous communities have environment management concerns and needs that often require a customized approach. Solstice helps communities grow, develop and operate in environmentally sustainable ways.
Solstice works collaboratively with First Nations, Inuit and Metis communities. We believe we can learn from one another. The Solstice team acts like a bridge, finding the healthy balance between Traditional Knowledge and Western Science. Our technical expertise and ability to see the ecological big picture, paired with Indigenous peoples’ knowledge and history with the land, makes us strong partners.
