We have several small but well-established survey teams across the northwest with staff located in Prince Rupert, Terrace, Kitimat, New Hazelton, and Smithers.  Though they often work together to take advantage of specific skill sets and to deliver projects, historically the teams have operated independently.  However, with the many opportunities due to economic growth in Northwest BC being driven by LNG Canada, the Port of Prince Rupert, mining, and other resource and industrial projects, we are looking to create a cohesive team that will operate across the region.  This will allow us to proactively respond to survey requests from Haida Gwaii west to Burns Lake and north to the Yukon and Alaska borders.

This role will bring the community-based teams together to lead them with an eye to maintain our technical excellence, develop new talent, and grow the business in Northwest BC. The successful candidate will utilize McElhanney talent and resources wherever they are located with a focus on delivering a variety of existing technical services to each project. They will also seek to integrate new services offerings that enhance our reputation, add value to the client, and result in increased profitability; and will maintain relationships with satisfied, long-standing clients in the region.

Geodetic Survey Capacity Building

The Canada-CARICOM Expert Deployment Mechanisms (CCEDM) is a four-year, demand-based program funded by Global Affairs Canada and executed by CESO (Canadian Executive Services Organization). The program’s objective is to support governments in building capacity through technical assistance to diversify their local economies, build climate change resilient communities, and promote gender equality. To do so, CESO identifies and deploys Canadian experts to work with the partners through advising, coaching, training, assessment, etc.

The technical assistance last about two weeks in person or two to three months virtual (around 70 hours), on average (however, this is flexible). All our Advisors are volunteers (CESO roster), but we may work with external paid consultants in those cases where we don’t have the experts in the roster (as in this case) As you will see in the PDF, GLSC is looking for high-level advice and training on:

– Upgrade the current Geodetic network and infrastructure
– Hands-on training on standards operations procedures, maintenance, and management to densify the Continous Operation Reference Station (CORS)
– Support data collection process for a future geoid and ellipsoid model
– Training for an improved local mapping framework.

The idea of technical assistance is to create capacity (institutional and human resources), so we expect the consultant to work hand-in-hand with the GLSC staff.

CESO covers the assistance costs, including professional fees and travel expenses (airfare, accommodation, meals, and local transportation, according to GAC rates)
