About Us

Are you interested in working with a team that embraces new ways of doing archaeology? At Millennia our archaeologists and GIS specialists share a vision to provide high quality services and products using new technologies and approaches that contribute to the preservation, investigation and knowledge of the past.  Our corporate culture prioritizes the inherent value of archaeological heritage, our connections with each other, our clients and the Nations with whom we work. We gratefully acknowledge these Indigenous communities, their living heritage, and the cultural legacy that has been shared with us. We are equally grateful for the commitment, integrity and passion of our dedicated team.

Millennia provides archaeological services to a wide variety of clients in British Columbia including First Nations, governments, Crown corporations, and private companies and individuals. We are a small company of approximately 20 employees with a collaborative and team-based work environment. Millennia’s office is located close to downtown Victoria, directly adjacent to the Galloping Goose Regional Trail, and near major transit corridors with year-round walking, biking, and public transit friendly commuting options. Our remote working environment supports staff working out of Prince Rupert and the Lower Mainland. Most of Millennia’s work is on southern Vancouver Island, but we undertake projects across British Columbia.
