Wake the Giant in Thunder Bay

The aim of Wake The Giant is to form stronger bonds, relationships and understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in Thunder Bay and surrounding area.

Displaying this symbol outside of our Thunder Bay office means DST is a safe space in our neighbourhood for indigenous youth, indicating we are contributing to increasing understanding and awareness of Indigenous cultures in the region.

“This is just one of many opportunities DST will be working on – showing our support and commitment to the First Nations throughout Northwestern Ontario and Canada. I’m proud we can call our office a Safe Space location,” says Ed Collins, Manager of Indigenous Relations.

DST is proud to work and partner with First Nation communities across Canada.

Marketing Intern Farewell

For those of you at DST who I have not met, I am sorry that our paths never crossed. I have been working every Friday out of the Thunder Bay office as the marketing intern under Amanda Sauermann and Sheena Larson.


I was hired as a marketing intern by DST through the RBC Work Integrated Learning Program. The objective of the program is to pair future graduates from Lakehead University with employers in their field of study. The program is structured so students can gain exposure to the workplace and then attend workshops to reflect on their experience and develop skills that will make them a more competent employee.


My experience here at DST has been nothing short of inspirational and I am very fortunate to have been selected by DST Consulting Engineers as their marketing intern. I know that the wisdom and insight I have gained from this experience will be invaluable as I move forward in my career. For all of you at DST who made my time here unforgettable, thank you, your warmth and generosity were always much appreciated.

DST at Algonquin College

On April 3rd, DST Consulting Engineers attended the Algonquin College  Professional Networking Event in Ottawa.

The event gave students an opportunity to connect with environmental professionals and industry leaders from around the Ottawa region. In addition to the wealth of networking opportunities, the event gave students an opportunity to gain deeper insight into what it means to be an industry professional and the steps they need to take to become one.

DST’s own Sue Murphy (HR Administrator), Guillaume Castonguay (Project Manager) and Zubair Hossain (Environmental Scientist) managed the DST booth and offered wisdom from each of their disciplines to passers-by. According to Guillaume, “it was the best student event I’ve attended in a long time”.

DST loves getting involved with those who are new to the industry and we want to encourage those who have questions to reach out to us on one of our many social media platforms.
