The Frog: The Voice of the People

Embark Engineering Frog Our corporate logo is the frog, which for many First Nation people represents the voice of the people and creates unity and agreement. The frog is productive, shares knowledge and teaches by example. The frog is also a measure of the health of the environment.

The frog stands for what we at Embark Engineering believe in: working with community and project proponents to enhance capacity, while delivering sustainable projects, in a manner that protects ecosystem health.
