Mark Shrimpton has over twenty years of experience of consultant research in Canada, working for clients in industry, government, local business, labour, community groups and women's groups.Much of this work has been concerned with the assessment, planning and management of the socio-economic impacts of resource development activity, including work for clients in the oil industry (e.g. Exxon-Mobil, Petro-Canada, Chevron Canada Resources, Husky Energy and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers), mining industry (e.g. the Voisey's Bay Nickel Company and Australian Mines and Metals Association), government (e.g. the US Minerals Management Service, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, the Government of British Columbia and the Falkland Islands Government), international agencies (e.g. the UN International Labour Office), and business and community groups.
In Canada, he has played a lead role in: public consultations and the socio-economic impact assessments of the Hibernia, Terra Nova and White Rose oilfield development and Voisey's Bay Mine/Mill and Smelter/Refinery projects; preparing the Benefits Plan for White Rose; preparing business and infrastructure requirements studies; and, monitoring of the effects of resource development activity.He has also undertaken in-depth studies of: the interactions between the oil industry and frontier regions; the effects of commute employment on workers, families and communities; the occupational health and safety implications of remote work; and, women=s involvements with the oil and mining industries.This has included work for clients in the United States, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, France, Switzerland, Argentina, the Falkland Islands and Australia.
It is these international experiences that prompted him to initiate and subsequently direct the CIBS study of knowledge-based export services from Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, Iceland and the Isle of Man.The final report, Small Places, Big Ideas: Exporting Knowledge-Based Services from the Atlantic Periphery, examines the expansion in export services, the market opportunities, and best practices for both service exporters and those (for example, government agencies and economic development groups) seeking to encourage, support and facilitate such activity.
Mark has made presentations on his research interests at conferences and symposia in the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, the Faroe Islands, Norway, Malaysia and Australia.He also holds the honorary position of Adjunct Professor of Geography at Memorial University of Newfoundland, where he has provided specialist advice and teaching on resource management issues.This has included teaching, as a sessional lecturer, in the Departments of Geography, Sociology and Anthropology and the Faculty of Engineering.

'Oil & gas is often viewed as a threat, not as an opportunity, by residents of the Arctic,' said Mark Shrimpton, senior associate for socio-economic services at Stantec Consulting. 'Even economic development professionals have a profoundly negative outlook on our industry.'
For quite some time, he said, Newfoundland and Labrador was a 'have-not' province with low levels of education and high rates of unemployment. Then, 'in the late 1970s, the government decided to intervene as best it could to harness the potential of the oil & gas industry and moved forward with a variety of projects' such as Hibernia and Hebron. The oil industry has had far-reaching effects in the region, Shrimpton said, including higher incomes and investment in infrastructure, education, training and research and development. 'It really has been a transformation.'
Access in other areas in the Arctic will require overcoming negative stereotypes and expectations, he added. Any plans for projects in the Arctic 'have to be context-specific. There is no one-size fits all,' Shrimpton said.
