UNDERSTANDING OUR PAST. REDEFINING THE FUTURE.

Like a small ember reigniting a campfire, heritage has the power to light our way forward. We work with industry and community to understand the past and solve problems in the present, creating sustainable growth alongside our partners.

INDUSTRY

Ember Archaeology helps clients minimize their impact in the places they work. We are one of the largest teams of archaeology permit-holders in Alberta, partnered with foresters, biologists and IT experts. Our team delivers unrivaled reliability, efficiency and adaptability at every step.

Community

Unearthing the past doesn’t only capture imaginations. It also provides an extraordinary chance to understand the human experience. From community and youth archaeology to municipal heritage plans, our goal is to connect people of all ages and backgrounds to the past through customized programming.
