Helga Sonnenberg, Founder and CEO

Founder and CEO

After 25 years of working on large multidisciplinary water and fisheries related projects for industry and government, Helga created Ecoreg Solutions, a company that believes in environmental stewardship and demands a comprehensive approach to your water related issues.

Her senior team has more than 75 years of experience and has worked together conducting hundreds of studies assessing water quality, fisheries and permitting aspects of projects at all phases from concept, to project development, operations and closure.

Living on an island in the Haliburton Highlands during the summer,  with a boat as her only mode of transportation, Helga developed a love for freshwater environments. Her childhood fascination led to a career in the environmental field in the late 1980s. It was a new field and applied science that resonated as important and rewarding work, and it has been. It was time to create a company of her own to further build on her strengths and values.
