Just Down the Road

“SNC-Lavalin has worked on coal projects around the world, including the ongoing expansion of one of the largest mining operations in the world. A strong and capable worldwide team of project management and engineering professionals support our clients in the delivery of coal mining projects from the ROM pad to the port, including all mine area related infrastructure and rail.”



SNC-Lavalin former executives are implicated in a number of corruption-related scandals across the globe.


Port Metro Vancouver retains SNC-Lavalin Environment, a division of SNC-Lavalin Inc., to conduct environmental impact assessments of its projects. In its report on the proposed expansion of the Fraser Surrey Docks coal facilities, SNC-Lavalin Environment found that the project would “not likely cause significant adverse effects to the environment or human health.”


The local offices of SNC-Lavalin Environment are at 8648 Commerce Court, Burnaby.

On Saturday, January 11, 2014, at about 11:00 AM, near the junction of Gaglardi Way and Government Street, Burnaby –a four-minute drive from SNC-Environment’s offices- seven coal cars of a westbound Canadian National train left the track; three of the cars tipped and dumped their contents into the coho salmon bearing Stoney Creek.
