Urban Systems Ltd.


We are professional engineers, community planners, policy analysts, landscape architects, environmental scientists, communication experts, technologists, legal surveyors, and administrative professionals.

As an organization we are committed to our higher calling of spirit in service for vibrant communities; for our people this is more than a corporate mission statement, it is our passion.

Spirit in Service for Vibrant Communities is more than just a tag line, it is what we deeply believe in and what we are constantly striving for.

We bring spirit to every interaction, every day. At 15 offices across 4 provinces, our 450 employees are enthusiastic, passionate and fun.

Spirit lives in service. Not ‘and’ service, or ‘of’ service but ‘in’ service because we bring spirit as part of the service we provide for our clients, for each other and for our communities.

Service implies a relationship between the work we do and our clients and communities. We strive to serve our clients wholeheartedly rather than the other way around.

Vibrant describes what we help enable communities to be – prosperous, sustainable, resilient and healthy. And communities unite our work, our lives and the environment to help them become the best they can be.

Urban Systems was founded in 1975. We’re privately-owned and have been recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada fourteen times since 2006.
