Ecora will be the most valued and preferred engineering and natural resource consulting firm.


We will achieve our vision by making “The Ecora Way” a relentless pursuit of efficient and effective solutions in every aspect of our business. Ecora will be flexible enough to respond to market conditions but will never sacrifice quality.


Ecora was launched in 2010 as a forestry and environmental services firm thanks to the vision of four established businessmen: Kelly Sherman, Dan Bernier, Dave Myers and Shikun Ran. The quartet had previously combined their skills with another company but they each held a strong belief that a new direction was needed to attain more predominant success and so they branched out on their own. We then joined forces with Mike Young, a civil engineer who has a deep resume of completed projects in the Okanagan region dating back to 1995. Young joined the firm as an equal partner, and it was at that time when Ecora officially expanded into the engineering space.

Our friendly and passionate team offers a full spectrum of consulting services in natural resource, and engineering to our diverse clients in forestry, oil and gas, municipal developments, environmental, alternative energy, and other industries. In addition to these clients, we provide services and support to meet the unique needs of various First Nations communities.


The most effective teams are those with individual commitment to a group effort. The leadership of Ecora, along with the help of the rest of the Ecora Team, recently redefined the values that will guide our business into the future. It was important that the Core Values of Ecora were representative of the values of our people, both at work, and in their personal lives. Each and every team member of Ecora is asked to use these four core values to help guide their behaviours and contributions, both in, and outside of the workplace.


The Ecora Team is truly the heart of our company, as they collectively provide the services and products to our valued clients. Our success comes from having quality people in a healthy and safe workplace with an encouraging and rewarding work environment.
