Businesses Seizing Opportunity Here

Success Story:

Engineering Firm Doubles Its Size in Burlington

MTE Consultants, a multidisciplinary engineering firm, provides services in engineering, building science, land surveying and more. They were looking to attract clients in the Hamilton, Halton, Toronto and Niagara regions, and needed a central location and skilled workforce from which to attract talent from.

Our city stood out to them. As part of Halton region, Burlington meant easy access to clients and project locations.

MTE Workers Brainstorming

Our highly skilled workforce (73% of residents have a diploma or degree) provided them with a large talent pool to source their engineering team from.

MTE Consultants opened an office here in 2002 and credits Burlington with their continued success; they have doubled in size and have seized additional professional opportunities from our city’s continued growth and urbanization. They also feel that Burlington, with its perfect balance of rural to urban areas, strong sense of community, and location on the northern edge of Lake Ontario, is the ideal place to live.
