Industries We Serve
Over the past 35 years, our skills, expertise and equipment have been put to use for clients in virtually every industry that requires access and environmental services. Many of those clients have been with us from the start, and stay with us because they know we deliver exceptional service and results.
Oil & Gas
Bear understands the challenges of working in the increasingly complex energy sector with its constantly evolving regulations. Our decades of experience in the oil and gas sector – where we pioneered the use of mulching – means we’re able to tackle any job of any size.
Western Canada’s forestry industry is ideally suited for Bear’s fire-free land clearing solutions. We offer a safer, more effective way to deal with everything from Pine Beetles to wildfire prevention.
Removing vegetation is the crucial first step in any construction project. Bear Access’s mulching equipment combined with our three decades of expertise, clears your site quickly and safely so you can get to work.
When it comes to clearing spaces for recreational use, you want to maintain the natural beauty of the site. Bear Access’s experience with selective logging and narrow width mulching creates spaces that are ideal for any recreational purpose.
When it comes to clearing spaces for commercial use, Bear’s experience with logging and mulching means we’re able to tackle any job of any size and create a space ideal for your commercial needs.
From greenfield utility installations to brownfield maintenance and cleanup, Bear’s service solutions are founded on strong community and local landowner engagement programs. We ensure community impact is a priority in our project initiation, management and execution. Our power services include community engagement, landowner and stakeholder relations, access solutions for powerlines, vegetation maintenance and reclamation solutions.
As environmental sustainability and climate change leadership become policy and the cost of producing renewable energy decreases, the demand for service contractors with expertise in developing mid to large-scale renewable energy sites continues to increase. Bear’s experience with this scope of work contributes to:

Bear Access and Environmental started with the goal offering environmentally friendly access and clearing services. For us that meant saving trees where we could, logging salvageable trees and eliminating the need for expensive reclamation efforts.
Along the way, our founder Danny Dion constantly looked for ways to embrace new standards, utilize more advanced equipment and uphold the highest standards for safety and efficiency. It’s this commitment that has made Bear Access and Environmental the leader of access, mulching, line clearing, site clearing and logging services.
As industries evolve – and client needs change – we will continue to expand our expertise and equipment so that our clients can always look to us for safe, effective, environmentally responsible solutions.
We know that how you work with people is just as important as how well you work with equipment. Bear strives to build and maintain meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships with the communities where we operate. This helps us understand local culture and customs and ensures the work we do benefits the local economy.
Bear encourages participation and recruitment from within the communities where we work, promoting economic sustainability that will last far beyond the project. As part of these efforts, we provide skilled and qualified Indigenous peoples with positions in our operations, helping them develop marketable and industry recognized skills, which may lead to enhanced employment opportunities.
We are proud to be an active member of the Northern Alberta Aboriginal Business Association.
