Estab­lished in 2015, Atl­her­itage is a pri­vate and local­ly owned her­itage con­sult­ing and stake­hold­er engage­ment firm based out of Saska­toon spe­cial­iz­ing in Her­itage Resources Impact Assess­ments (HRIAs) across the Prairie Provinces. In 2017, Atl­west Com­mu­ni­ca­tions was formed to bet­ter man­age our grow­ing stake­hold­er engage­ment and com­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vices. To date, we have suc­cess­ful­ly com­plet­ed over 300 con­sult­ing projects through­out Saskatchewan. Our pre­sen­ta­tion will focus on con­sult­ing archae­ol­o­gy in Saskatchewan, while we take a look back at some of our more mem­o­rable Projects and archae­o­log­i­cal sites we have worked on includ­ing archae­o­log­i­cal work for Parks Cana­da, mit­i­ga­tion work on tipi rings, stone cairns and camp­sites, forestry work in north­ern Saskatchewan and ceme­tery work using GPR.
