Your Opportunity

Our Water sector, which brings together many of the world’s top engineers and scientists, sees water a bit differently—as a single holistic system rather than as unconnected networks divided by jurisdictional boundaries. We use this perspective to help communities tap into water’s potential.


Throughout the life cycle of capture, use, reuse, and discharge, our team optimizes every facet of a water system. Whether a project calls for planners, designers, construction managers, or facility operators, we have the right experts to provide creative, yet practical, water solutions. Through our cost-effective strategies, we’re helping communities increase their water efficiency and protect their water resources for future generations. Join our team as we create new ways to tap into water’s vast potential. 


Stantec’s Water Team has a strong local presence but also participates in some of Stantec’s largest and most complex water projects.  


Our Red Deer, Alberta office is actively seeking a Senior Engineer or Technician with minimum of 10 years of experience to join our Water Team.
