On October 1, 2006, Cansult Limited, one of the most successful consulting firms in the Arabian Gulf merged with AECOM, a leading global provider of design and management services in the transportation, facilities, and environmental markets. Cansult, headquartered in Ontario, has more than US$60 million in annual revenue and approximately 700 employees operating out of offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Doha, and Al Ain, as well as in Ontario. As a result of the merger, Cansult will be aligned with the Arabian Gulf operations of AECOM's Maunsell operating company. Maunsell is among the fastest-growing firms in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East region, with more than 3,000 employees and a project portfolio that includes the US$18 billion Al Raha Beach Development, the US$108 million Dubai Studio City Sound Stages, and the US$3.5 billion Dubai Metro Project. Fasken Martineau advised Cansult in this transaction with a team comprised of Roxanne McCormick and Lisa Marcuzzi (corporate), Alan Schwartz and Mitchell Thaw (tax) and student-at-law Alex Nikolic.
