Silvatech Group Takes Land Base Information Services to a New Level

To maintain our standard of living in the 21st century, Canada must address the challenge of environmental sustainability.

Terry Smith, President and General Manager of Silvatech Group, is using leading edge technology and a team of experts to help governments and large resource companies to protect and manage our environment.

It is Silvatech’s mission to provide high value land base information through comprehensive resource inventories and land use planning that enables socially responsible, economically viable and environmentally sustainable policies and decision making.

Jim Prentice, Canadian Minister of the Environment, says, “To maintain our standard of living in the 21st century, Canada must address the challenge of environmental sustainability. Environmental issues must be balanced with economic considerations. By doing so, we can make long-term sustainable progress on the environment that is integrated with progress on the economic and social agenda for Canadians.”
