| Saint John has been described as the industrial powerhouse of Canada's Maritime provinces. Wealthy industrialist K.C. Irving and his family built an industrial conglomerate in the city during the 20th century with interests in oil, forestry, shipbuilding, media and transportation. Irving companies remain dominant employers in the region with the most important businesses being eastern North America's first deepwater oil terminal, a pulp mill, a newsprint mill and a tissue paper plant.
Other important economic activity in the city is generated by the Port of Saint John, the Moosehead Brewery (established in 1867, is Canada's only nationally distributed independent brewery in Canada, the New Brunswick Power Corporation which operates three electrical generating stations in the region including the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station, Aliant Telecom which operates out of the former New Brunswick Telephone headquarters, numerous information technology companies and the Atlantic Health Sciences Corporation - operator of New Brunswick's largest health care facility, Saint John Regional Hospital. There are also a number of call centres which were established in the 1990s under provincial government incentives.
We assist Saint John public and private sector natural resource entities and related organizations (regulatory bodies) with documentation (e.g. regulation, public policy, exploration, harvesting, infrastructure, transportation, distribution, energy supply, rate cases, public hearings, deregulation, markets, bid rigging, price fixing, privatization, cooperatives, etc.) that is written in 'technical' language and requires accurate translation.
Among other topics, we assist organizations with environmental documentation (e.g. User Instructions, Manuals, Technical Reports, Patent
Applications, Brochures, Scientific Articles, Textbooks, Product Specifications, Site Surveys, Feasibility Studies, Material Safety Data Sheets, etc.). We cover
the whole spectrum of environmental fields of practice (see: Translation of Environmental Specialties and Sub-specialties).
