The majority of our employees who work out of our 11 offices are now working remotely from home, while our field staff have been provided with safe work protocols and checklists outlining responsible social distancing, personal hygiene, and cleaning measures. We will continue to adhere by the Federal, Provincial, and Municipal government’s guidelines to ensure we can continue to carry out services, while maintaining the protection of our employees, clients, and members of the communities in which we live and work.

Alex Penner, ALS, P.Eng | Project Manager
I came to Midwest Surveys in 2006 as a summer student and continued to work with the company between University terms until 2011, which is when I joined the team full time. Not only do I get to do what I love, but I’ve also had the opportunity to invest in the company, while building lasting relationships with my colleagues along the way. Midwest is a fun place to work, where the challenges of a fast-paced industry offer technical and professional growth in an extremely team oriented environment.
