Honoured by Bob Alkins

Northland Engineering was a consulting firm that over the years provided engineering services for Civil, Structural, Mechanical, and Electrical branches of consulting. Northland Engineering Limited is primarily remembered for its expertise in civil and structural designs over the life of its existence. Northland’s expertise in planning, land development, environmental planning, highways, infrastructure, buildings and bridges was recognized by the private sector as well as Municipal, Provincial and Federal Governments.

Murray McLean
Murray graduated from the University of New Brunswick in 1946 in Civil Engineering. Murray was first employed by the Department of Transport. He also held a variety of positions with the Royal Canadian Engineers, the Shawinigan Engineering Company, and the Abitibi Power and Paper Company. Murray decided to move to Ontario to pursue his engineering career. Murray moved his family from the Maritimes to Ontario and eventually settled in North Bay. Murray and his wife Gwen raised three wonderful girls, Susan, Jeannie and Megan.

Stephen Shisko
Stephen graduated from Queen’s University, Kingston in 1950 in Civil Engineering. Upon his graduation he started working for Abitibi Power & Paper Co. Ltd. Steve also decided to pursue his engineering career in Northern Ontario because of the wide variety of engineering opportunities in the north. Steve moved to North Bay with his wife Sheila. They raised three wonderful children, John, Alan and Anne.

What started out as a construction company became McLean (Murray) and Shisko (Stephen) in 1956. The company was incorporated in 1965 under the name of McLean, Shisko & Associates Limited, and operated under the name Northland Engineering until July 1970 when the name was legally changed to Northland Engineering Limited. A branch office was established in Sudbury in 1966. Offices in Thunder Bay and Timmins were opened later to provide engineering services to their clients. Northland Engineering Limited was a consulting civil engineering firm that engaged in municipal, structural, transportation, industrial, infrastructure, planning and resource management & development services for the public, industrial, institutional, commercial and government sectors. It was one of the largest Northern Ontario based consulting engineering firms that grew from a partnership in 1956 to an incorporated company with a staff of over sixty employees. Upon the retirement of Murray McLean, and change in directors, the name was changed to Northland Engineering (1987) Limited. On January 1, 2005, after 49 years of business, Northland Engineering was purchased by Trow Associates Inc. although the name did not officially change until January 2008 thus ending a half century local business. Today we are part of exp Services Inc.
