Western Canada's energy and natural resources sectors are synonymous with the provisions of commodities across Canada and throughout the world, which is no easy feat.

Unstable land foundations such as high-water tables and soft layers of earth effectively impede safe and efficient access to these regions.
As humans, we seek to innovate. We push the bounds of what technology can accomplish in order to improve our quality of living. This can happen as a result of the development of new technologies and procedures, or as a result of improvements to existing technologies and procedures. Either way, the end goal is the same: being better off than we once were.
