Hi, I’m Monique Wismer, Partner and Director of Sustainability and Social Responsibility here at Trace Associates. We work with companies in very demanding, high-pressure industries. When you add the steps required to meet government regulations, especially when regulations change quickly, that can be a lot to deal with. As consultants, we’re looking to minimize that stress with smart, practical solutions that keep clients in compliance while ensuring they’re doing the right thing for the environment.

Our industrial regulatory experts help clients reduce operating costs while strengthening project permitting and environmental compliance through the combination of disciplined regulatory compliance and cost-conscious solutions. Our services help clients enhance operational efficiency and cost management, understanding of key approvals, compliance monitoring, workforce training, and regulatory and stakeholder relationships.

what our clients are saying

“We like Trace. We like Ron, we like Nick, and we like the relationships we’ve built on our projects with them. They have a suite of services that cover the ecological and environmental, and they have demonstrated that they understand what needs to be done, aren’t doing unnecessary work, and they make sure it gets done. Ron told me that the Trace motto is to 'consult better.' This motto is reflected in the service they provide.”

Clark | Qualico Communities

“I appreciate Trace’s candidness, honesty, and straightforwardness. The communication is strong, they are always professional, and they stay on point. They’re good at what they do and are always available when I need them.”

Confidential Client

“Trace provides a level of personal service that we don’t get from other companies. We get straightforward, open communication with Project Managers, including frequent touch-points. Trace always does what they say they are going to do.”

Neil Reid | Midstream Energy Client

“I choose Trace because of their expertise and clarity on what they will deliver, and my trust in them. We share similar values of honesty and communication. They’re very thoughtful in what they do and their expertise is very appreciated. Nothing they do or say leaves you scratching your head.”

Warn Franklin | works with Ron at Trace

“I value our relationship with Trace and can see it continuing into the future.  Having a third party come in to do environmental inspections is very helpful and gives added focus on areas that might otherwise be neglected due to the busy nature of the business. Trace's expertise in the Environmental Consultant field helps keep NorSask on a path of continuous improvement. We very much appreciate the proactive approach that Trace takes to meet our needs.”
