Where is OEI headquartered?
Based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, OEI serves clients operating all over the world.
Who Does OEI Serve?
Our clients include national, regional, and local governments including First Nations, as well as multinational engineering and logistics firms, tourism destinations, and airport and port authorities.
Our engagements range from single-runway municipal airports in Western Canada to massive drydocks serving multiple nations in Africa. We’ve also assisted a First Nations health authority looking to provide emergency air services to remote communities, and an island in Oceania determining the viability of a new airport and ensuing tourism revenue stream.
What is OEI’s Mission?
OEI’s approach is simple: when done right, transportation connects people and enriches us all. Our highways, rivers, air routes, and ocean corridors deliver virtually all of life’s essentials — as well as opportunities for growth.
Knowing how to best expand and improve these networks in times of depleted resources, climate change, and economic uncertainty requires unique expertise and experience. In this environment of complex overlapping systems — financial, engineering, and regulatory — governments and businesses need a trusted source of information and practical advice. Enter OEI.
