Environmentally Committed

Doug LIntula’s time with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment led to an immense amount of consulting, writing and editing work in the environmental and energy fields.

Doug is especially adept at helping policy committees, research and environmental groups, and consultants prepare reports and research papers. Much of this work has been done for government agencies, federal and provincial, either directly or on a team basis through environmental and management consulting firms.

Vendor of Record. From 2004 to 2006, Doug was part of a RFP-selected, 10-member roster providing writing services to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment.

    Working with the MOE’s Environmental Swat Team, he prepared the final report of their inspection sweep of the petrochemical industry in the Sarnia area.
