New Joint Venture for CIPS 

CIPS partners with QM Environmental for a joint venture in Ontario.


Cambium Indigenous Professional Services (CIPS) is proud to announce that we have entered into a Joint Venture with QM Environmental (“QM”), a leading Canadian environmental and industrial services company for mould remediation and the removal and disposal of flaking lead-based and associated heavy metals dust at a Canadian Armed Forces Base (CFB) in Trenton, Ontario.


Our new partnership, CIPS/QM LP has recently been awarded the contract by Defense Construction Canada (DCC) and is slated to start on November 16, 2020, at Building 24, also known as the Warrant's & Sargent's mess, a multi-use building located at CFB Trenton. CIPS is excited for this new relationship and this opportunity will provide our team of Indigenous professionals with an opportunity to work alongside Canada’s leading environmental companies.


CIPS and QM Environmental are both dedicated to providing environmental services across the nation and will join efforts and expertise to complete the project successfully.

CIPS is excited for this new relationship. This opportunity will provide our team of Indigenous professionals with an opportunity to work alongside Canada’s leading environmental companies. We see this as a starting point for our Indigenous team to scale up our abilities across Canada. We want to be a trusted Indigenous firm able to serve the needs of our First Nation communities when it comes to contamination and hazardous materials management.


 "QM puts a strong emphasis on Indigenous involvement and has a proven track record of successful partnership and collaboration with local Indigenous groups across Canada. We are excited and looking forward to a successful partnership with CIPS on this project and others in the future,” said Jeremy Robinson, Senior Vice President & Division Head, Emergency Management & Environmental Response Services and HazMat, QM Environmental.

CIPS is very excited to be a part of this Joint Venture and see this as an opportunity for all Indigenous Businesses across Canada about the partnership and joint venture opportunities with related organizations, communities and businesses.
