Atlheritage's highly trained and experienced employees have helped many Oil and Gas companies meet and exceed regulatory approvals (Provincial and Federal Legislation, Indian Oil and Gas Canada) on time and on budget. We understand that the Oil and Gas industry is demanding and competitive, so for this reason we efficiently and effectively obtain regulatory heritage clearance well in advance of construction schedules.

Cemetery management 

Atlheritage believes cemeteries are an important part of our history.  Cemetery management is crucial to preserving our history, commemorating our ancestors, and planning for future internments and cemetery use.  When properly managed and commemorated, cemeteries can provide a sense of pride within communities.

Unfortunately, many cemeteries have no plans, poor records, and unmarked graves, making future internments problematic.  To help alleviate these issues, Atlheritage offers cemetery management with both active and abandoned cemeteries.  Our key services include Archival and Historic Research, Inventory of Existing Grave Markers (photographing and mapping using GPS), Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to identify unmarked graves, determining Cemetery Boundaries and Detailed Mapping (e.g. known graves, unmarked graves, areas recommended for future use).

Community and Aboriginal engagement

Atlheritage continually strives to build solid and trust worthy relationships with all groups of people including Aboriginal, Local Communities and Municipalities, Corporations and all forms of Government.  Our objective is to foster business development and build relationships between two or more groups of people which are either directly or indirectly involved with a particular project.

Atlheritage understands cultures and the interview process (e.g. approach, traditions and offerings), arranging community and private meetings and the ability to successfully document and record interviewee information and concerns.   Traditional Land Use, Community and Aboriginal Engagement are a crucial component for all large scale developments.
