Each day, the oil and gas sector deals with environmental issues concerning air quality and greenhouse gas emissions, deregulation of industry standards and practices, consumer advocacy groups and achieving voluntary challenge goals. To address these issues, companies must have skilled environmental technical specialists to navigate and respond to these demands.

The Encana Environmental Technology Centre offers environmental training programs to industry needs. It provides our Environmental Technology students with a solid foundation in environmental work in field operations and the lab. It also gives those working in the industry a chance to upgrade and expand their current environmental skills using innovative environmental technology.

Oki, Âba wathtech, Danit'ada, Tawnshi, Hello.

SAIT is located on the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of Treaty 7 which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Îyârhe Nakoda of Bearspaw, Chiniki and Goodstoney.

We are situated in an area the Blackfoot tribes traditionally called Moh’kinsstis, where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. We now call it the city of Calgary, which is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
