About Us

Northern Bioscience offers professional consulting services supporting ecosystem management, inventory, and research. Based in Thunder Bay, Northern Bioscience was established in 1996 and has undertaken over 400 projects for government, industry, First Nations, non-government organizations (NGOs), and landowners. We have carried out projects in six provinces and two territories in Canada, as well as in the United States.

Our principals combine strong academic backgrounds and experience working for government with an extensive network of highly experienced professional associates. We are among the leaders in understanding the boreal flora, fauna, and ecosystems in northern Ontario. Since we are a small company, personal attention of the principals is ensured from field work through to reporting. With low overhead and efficient project teams, we deliver realistic work plans and budgets with cost-effective solutions. Northern Bioscience can assemble a multi-disciplinary team of environmental professionals to provide a full range of ecological services.
