Environmental Risk Information Services (ERIS) has been providing critical risk and historical information on properties in Canada since 1999.

What Our Environmental Risk Information Customers Say

In addition to producing a radius report that was easier for me to study as the consultant, ERIS has developed reports that are easy to read through with my clients as well. Over the years ERIS has continued to hold the top position on my list of database research providers by constantly innovating new value add-ons to their packages without additional cost. The ERIS Mobile app was a big plus for our company and my clients. The ability to have the historical aerials, topographic maps, and database information in the palm of my hand while I'm conducting the site reconnaissance made the field work more focused and discreet, saving time and money. Additionally, the ability to georeference site photos with field notes and compile them into a photolog report trimmed down on hours of reporting time previously spent combing through hundreds of site photos and generating those logs manually. That's not even considering the additional time needed to convert HEIC photos to JPG if your field technician has an iPhone. That conversion is done in the app, eliminating even more time spent on just an appendix of the Phase I ESA report. Being an ERIS user has allowed me to devote more time to painting a complete and detailed picture of environmental risk for my clients instead of organizing my information palette. Thank you, ERIS!

ARCADIS has been acquiring search reports from ERIS for several of their Phase I ESA projects throughout Canada especially in Québec, Ontario and Alberta. ERIS reports are designed for each province as they respond to local standards for such project. ERIS provides flexibility as they offer a wide range of search information that can be purchase on an “À la carte basis”. Hence, it is possible to purchase a search report that will contain all mandatory search documentation for a particular province and complete it with supplemental documentation for more complex sites as necessary.

ERIS’ database services are an invaluable source of information. They provide the easiest means of identifying critical records in a cost-effective manner. Efficient and effective is how we describe this business solution.

Clifford Eng AMEC Foster Wheeler
In our experience the ERIS Report is usually an essential component to a cost effective and complete Phase I Environmental Site Assessment. It provides a critical range of information that is necessary to conduct a proper historical review of the risks associated with a site in a way that is more cost effective than searching each data set independently. The order of an ERIS Report is a simple process that provides a quality product in a timely manner. Further, the ERIS Staff are very helpful and responsive when specialty products are required to meet unique site and project needs.

ERIS is a great place to start when gathering facts on a site.

Debbie Elmhirst Davies, Ward, Phillips, & Vineberg
The environmental database was very comparable to EDR's database. It was very user friendly and I had no issues transitioning from EDR to the ERIS format while writing the database section of my report.
