Allnorth has achieved certification with APEGBC’s Organizational Quality Management program, commonly called OQM, in the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland/Labrador. In 2016, APEGBC and Engineers Canada teamed up to bring the benefits of OQM program to organizations across Canada. The OQM program has been in place in British Columbia for over 4 years with resounding success.
OQM certification demonstrates that Allnorth is a leader in its commitment to quality management practices and standards.
