Saskatchewan’s environmental industry is innovative and progressive, the individuals and businesses involved in this sector are positioned to lead as our province’s economy goes green. The environmental sector employs a multi-disciplinary and skilled workforce that represents such diverse areas of the provincial economy as agriculture, mining, forestry, and manufacturing. By providing important and much-needed services, such as this easyto-use guide, SEIMA and its members are helping to fuel the continued growth and innovation of this vital sector.

SEIMA can take pride in its many contributions to the continued growth and innovation of Saskatchewan’s environmental sector. I offer my sincere thanks to you, its members, for your dedicated advisory and advocacy work in the area of responsible environmental management.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

G

reetings to all of our members, potential members and suppliers. thank you to all renewing members and welcome to new members. Continuing membership growth reflects the consistently strong growth within our industry. It is with your dedicated and consistent support that we are able to provide you with the services you have come to expect.

Looking at President Finnigan’s message from last year I could finish this letter quickly by just saying “ditto”. His message is as true today as it was a year ago. Saskatchewan is still prominent in economic news, we have immigration, we have growth and we need to focus on environmental sustainability. As of mid November there is a slate of new municipal governments elected in Saskatchewan; the provincial government is only a year into their mandate; the federal government is about 18 months into their term and the Americans have just finished their Presidential election process. So politically, hopefully there should be stability for two-to-four years. Stability provides an important platform for strategic planning. SEIMA for its part will be working hard to continue providing our regular services and developing new initiatives.

What does SEIMA do for you? A partial list includes the following: • SEIMA provides learning and networking opportunities through our luncheons and workshops; for example;

• Our collaboration with Maxxam for the seminar in March will deal with contaminants and remediation;

• the Saskatchewan Environmental Code workshop in April is the one we have all been awaiting;

• SEIMA provides support for students and youth with speed mentoring sessions, career counseling, facilitating networking opportunities with industry businesses, etc.;

• SEIMA lobbies on environmental issues of interest and importance to you with various governmental groups, agencies and organizations.

Recently SEIMA joined with a group of scientists to organize a professional association for those science professionals who cannot be members of existing professional associations. these people include but are not limited to biologists, chemists, soil scientists, toxicologists, etc. this association, Saskatchewan Association of Science Professionals (SASP), is in the process of being incorporated. Memberships will be available shortly. the longer and more involved process of drafting and enacting legislation will follow. this initiative will assist environmental scientists who are not members of currently legislated associations to be recognized as Qualified Persons, QPs, under the new, soon to be enacted Environmental Code. thank you to all members of the Board of Directors, past and present, to the hard working Executive Committee members and especially to our dedicated Executive Director, Kathleen Livingston, all of whom have made and continue to make SEIMA successful.

SEIMA’s growth and improvement rely on its members’ leadership and direction. Please get involved at whatever level your time will allow. If there is an initiative you would like SEIMA to undertake please contact Kathleen Livingston.

• SEIMA supports the Environmental Industry Leadership Award, to be presented in April.

• SEIMA provides an online Career Centre for advertizing positions and opportunities available with your company; and 8

MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Everything changes, all of the time.

t

Knowing that the human condition is to adapt, the phrase inspires me to acknowledge the inevitability of change and to respond with equanimity and strategic flexibility.

here has been a great deal of change over the last year, on all fronts, and to the credit of SEIMA’s Directors and most especially its Executive Officers, we remain an active and effective member association.

Changes to the Environmental Management and Protection Act, and the related Saskatchewan Environmental Code, hold the promise of supporting environmental stewardship through innovative technologies and practices that heretofore were all but blocked by prescriptive legislation that allowed little flexibility in the face of rapid industry changes. the pace of change has compelled legislative changes across the world, and Saskatchewan has responded in like manner.

this time of provincial review and planning has had its impact on SEIMA. the uncertainty meant uncertain support for SEIMA initiatives, support that was pivotal to many past member service projects. Fortunately, change creates opportunities for SEIMA. these opportunities will strengthen the association over the medium to long term.

Enterprise Saskatchewan, the Ministry of Energy and Resources, Advanced Education, Employment and Labour were subsumed into the Saskatchewan Ministry of Economy. the three defunct ministries were important supporters of SEIMA’s work. We monitor developments within the Ministry of Economy with optimism. SEIMA looks forward to working with the new super-ministry. Changes on the federal level are impacting Saskatchewan and SEIMA far less positively. In just a few short months we have lost among other services:

• the National Research Council Centre for Sustainable Infrastructure Research;

• the Prince Albert office of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans; and

• the Saskatoon office of the Department of Foreign Affairs and International trade.

All of these offices were stakeholders in environmental practice at some level in Saskatchewan and of interest to our industry. Several were important contributors to the sciences that underpin our industry. the impacts of these losses may not be felt immediately – although some will – but over time, the very real danger exists that our environmental stewardship capacity will erode along with our federal services. As of writing, changes in the Ministry of Environment are still underway, with the water portfolio being moved to the Water Security Agency. the implications for this and other changes are as yet unclear. But as always, SEIMA will respond strategically and in support of our industry. to say that SEIMA’s Directors are important to our operations and direction in such changing times is such an understatement. the time and dedication that these volunteers contribute are the life blood of this association. I acknowledge, honour and thank them for that contribution. I also urge all SEIMA members to consider engaging with the association. this is truly where the real value in membership is to be found.

• the Shelterbelt Program;

ABOUT SEIMA

SEIMA is a provincial association of companies and individuals within the environmental industry. Its membership is made up of environmental companies and environmental managers from other industries. these managers are responsible for environmental concerns within their organizations and represent sectors such as mining, forestry, agriculture and governments.

this diversity of membership is one of SEIMA’s greatest strengths as it creates linkages among the environmental industry, industries that are concerned about their environmental impact and government agencies that are responsible for environmental regulations or business development within the environmental sector. SEIMA has established a forum for exchange of information and ideas among these members and other industry contacts, focusing on the challenges and issues of the industry’s practitioners.

MISSION

to actively undertake advisory, advocacy and educational roles to promote responsible environmental management. to provide a range of beneficial services to its members and seek to develop the environmental industry in Saskatchewan. SEIMA will establish a forum for exchange of information and ideas among members and the public, and will speak for members on environmental matters.

VISION

SEIMA will lead as the recognized self-sufficient association of individuals, corporations, and organizations actively involved in responsible environmental management in Saskatchewan.
