Community Events & Sponsorships

Corporate responsibility is a top priority for DST Consulting Engineers and we make every effort to give back to the communities in which we operate. We understand that our continued support of local events, programs and charities contribute not only to the success and wellbeing of the community, but also the long term success of our business. Together, we are working with community partners to invest in our shared future.



We are excited to announce that DST has teamed up with EcoSuperior and the City of Thunder Bay to launch the 2017 Spring Up to Clean Up campaign!
Each year over 1000 employees representing over 100 Thunder Bay businesses step outside for 20 minutes to help clean up litter from their neighbourhoods. This event allows members of Thunder Bay’s business community to demonstrate their civic pride and take an active role in keeping our city clean, green, and beautiful.

It is our pleasure to extend an invitation to everyone in the community of Thunder Bay to join us at the DST office and show their support for this event!
When:   Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 10:30 am
Where:   DST Consulting Engineers | 605 Hewitson Street


There will be guest speakers, on location radio covering the event, and of course, delicious food following the clean-up.

DST is dedicated to the practice of sound environmental stewardship and we have been a long-time supporter of this fantastic community initiative. We are honoured to be able to host this year’s campaign launch and understand that the continued support of this event, and those like it, contributes to the success and well-being of our community. Through participation in events like Spring Up to Clean Up, we reinforce our commitment to promoting waste reduction practices to limit impacts on landfills.

To RSVP for the campaign launch, please get in touch with Shannon at EcoSuperior: shannon@ecosuperior.org or Amanda Sauermann at DST.

Looking forward to ‘spring’ into action with you to beautify Thunder Bay.

DST Supports up-and-coming Engineering Talent

Corporate responsibility continues to be a top priority for DST and we make every effort to give back to the communities in which we operate.  One area that is of particular importance to us is investing in the future of engineering.  This means supporting students.


As our way of continuing to support the next generation of engineers, DST is proud to announce the establishment of the DST Consulting Engineers Graduate Scholarship in Engineering at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario.


The Scholarship will be awarded annually to a high-ranking student enrolled full-time in the Masters of Science in Environmental Engineering Program at Lakehead.


Through the founding of this scholarship and our continued support of local programs and charities across DST offices, we are investing in the shared future of our communities.

DST Thunder Bay Office Flood

We are local experts in emergency flood relief and over the years we have helped many clients manage the most difficult aspects of a flood disaster.


This weekend the tables were turning and it was us who were in need of flood relief services when our DST Thunder Bay office was overwhelmed with water.


This has been a difficult time for us but it has also been an opportunity for us to learn. Through our experience we have learned more about what our clients need from us during these difficult times and how we can improve our disaster response.


We are in Thunder Bay with our wellies ready and are available to provide post flood consulting.

DST’s Eric Domingue Gives Tailings Dams Lecture

On Thursday, March 26th DST’s Eric Domingue, Environment Operations Manager, spoke to a captivated audience at Thompson River University (TRU) in Kamloops, BC on Tailings and Tailings Dams 101.

Covering all things tailings, including the good, the bad, and the ugly, Eric spoke for about an hour and fielded some tough questions from the audience.

DST was invited to speak on the topic by the Kamloops Exploration Group as part of their public outreach lecture series. Given the recent Mount Polly tailings pond breach it comes as no surprise that Eric’s talk was one of the best attended, also drawing attention from local media.

DST Supports Annual Pond Hockey Tournament

February 6, 7, and 8th marked the 7th Annual Pond Hockey on The Rock in Sudbury, Ontario and DST was once again proud to take part!  Although our team nearly clinched the top spot in the Corporate event we unfortunately lost out in the finals.  However, despite coming in second we, as always, had a wonderful time playing hockey and supporting a fantastic community event.  All of us can’t wait to see DST’s pond hockey champs hit the Ramsey Lake ice again in 2016!
