Erin Stapleton, MEDes, MCIP, EP
I have over 10 years’ experience providing environmental planning and stakeholder engagement services to the natural resources and energy sectors. I’ve worked on natural gas pipelines in British Columbia, wind farms and transmission lines in Alberta, mining operations in Nova Scotia, and clean technology in Newfoundland and Labrador.
As Director and Principal Consultant at Stapleton Environmental Consulting, I provide the same planning and engagement expertise as I've done for over a decade, but in a more personal, flexible and cost-effective package. I enjoy working with clients who see environmental protection and citizen engagement as good business practice. I’m inspired by communities who take the lead on climate change and energy challenges. I value ingenuity and like to collaborate with those who see opportunity in the low-carbon economy. I genuinely love what I do, and it shines through in the enthusiasm I bring to every project. I am the recipient of the Newfoundland and Labrador Organization of Women Entrepreneurs 2018 Entrepreneur of the Year - Momentum Award.
I am also the Senior Impact Assessment Specialist at Shared Value Solutions Ltd, where I assist Indigenous communities with impact assessment processes, providing regulatory advice and conducting technical reviews related to natural resource and energy developments throughout Canada.
