Our Rolling Stock Consultant Shahrzad Akbarzadeh Pooladi, who graduated from the University of Sydney, says, "AtkinsRéalis provided me the opportunity to learn and enhance my skills as a rail engineer and facilitated my desired career progression by placing me in the right projects and connecting me with the right people.”

We also offer training programmes to all of our colleagues - whether you are looking to become an expert on a subject or just want to pick up a new skill. Here’s what Kenzie Kelterborn, Director of Bids & Proposals, Nuclear, based in Ontario, Canada had to say:

“AtkinsRéalis is a company that invests in their people, makes valuable training available (including stretch assignments), and is large enough for professionals to create their own career paths.

Through training and exposure to new areas of the business, I was able to invest in my development and gained the ability to create my own path within a larger ecosystem. A lot of the roles I have had didn’t exist before I paved the way.”

Impactful projects

Our projects in Canada are designed to connect people and we're proud of the work we deliver because of the marked difference they make to the communities we work in.

  • The Canada Line - At 19 km, this makes The Canada Line the largest fully automated commuter rail network in the world. This project connected downtown Vancouver with existing heavy rail lines, bus services, commuter rail, sea bus and the airport - improving mobility for people in the area.
  • The Brun-way highway - The construction of a 98km stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway in New Brunswick was a monumental project that showcased the incredible power of public-private partnerships. In just 27 months, a team of over 1,100 construction workers and a dozen engineering firms collaborated to create one of the most modern highways in the world. Thanks to innovative financing and technology, the project was delivered on time, on budget, and with no claims.
  • The New Samuel de Champlain Bridge – This visually stunning cable-stayed bridge serves as a vital link between Canada and the US. With 50 million vehicles crossing annually, it is one of North America's busiest spans, playing a significant role in connecting people and boosting local and international economies. This impressive piece of infrastructure is a testament to the power of engineering to create enduring and impactful structures that benefit society for decades to come.
