Principal, Engineer

Based in Whitehorse, Yukon, the Principal of Boreal Engineering knows the north. Erik Nyland has resided in Whitehorse since a very young age. He began his career in construction as an equipment operator, mechanic, welder and truck driver, and soon progressed to land development and contracting. At the age of 35, Mr. Nyland returned to school to complete a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Alberta. Following graduation in 2003 he found employment with Government of Yukon in the Transportation Engineering Branch, followed by several years with a local engineering firm and as the Construction Manager at the Faro Mine Reclamation Project. Several opportunities for environmental and construction consulting resulted in the incorporation of Boreal Engineering Ltd. in 2010.
