CEP & Sintra unite


From Vancouver to Moncton, CEP and Sintra have united, becoming Canada’s largest independent forensic engineering firm. Across the country, we now have eight locations with experts in every office. Bringing an unparalleled presence, our engineers provide technical expertise into insurance-related losses and litigation for our clients across every region of the country.


Regardless of the type of incident, we provide the technical expertise to allow our clients to understand what happened. Uniting forensic engineers across all disciplines (electrical, mechanical, material science and structural), CEP and Sintra have merged to create a new depth of expertise unmatched in the country. No matter how technical the incident, we offer highly trained professionals in every accident and loss specialization.

Everywhere We’re Needed

Our forensic engineers are on the ground in every city and region we serve. We’re there with you, providing field advice and investigating the incidents as a team. Because we’re where the losses are, we can provide timely insight into what happened for all our assignments.

Understanding Needs

We only do work for insurance-related losses. This means we know what our clients are looking for, and how to provide them with the answers to their questions. This allows us to provide our clients with the information they need to resolve their matters quickly.


In a world of uncertainty, confidence comes from training and expertise. Our experts from east to west demonstrate the confidence that comes from training and knowledge of the work that we do. Our well-trained professionals have decades of experience and employ state-of-the-art techniques. We deliver thoughtful answers to the questions we’re asked, every time.


Both CEP and Sintra are independently trusted to provide answers to our client’s questions when they need them. We value the trust our clients place in us, and strive to ensure we live up to their expectations.


CEP-Sintra is not owned by an insurance service firm, and, as such, is an independent voice that provides arm’s length investigations for our clients.



Merger questions
& answers

Why have CEP and Sintra merged?

The newly merged company will bring CEP’s strength in Eastern Canada, combined with Sintra Engineering’s broad reach in Western and Northern Canada, to form the largest forensic engineering company in the country.

What type of work do you perform?

Both firms provide full-service forensic engineering for insurance-related losses and litigation. We perform our work for insurers, insurance adjusters, risk managers and safety personnel. With close to 100 staff, we have the capacity to complete assignments from coast to coast.

What are the benefits of the merged company?

The combined company will have the farthest geographic reach of any forensic engineering firm in Canada, providing cross-country coverage with fully staffed offices from Moncton to Vancouver. CEP’s strong base in Quebec also delivers comprehensive French services, which no other national firm offers.

What makes you independent?

Some insurance service firms own both claims adjusting and forensic engineering companies. This co-ownership creates a relationship that can possibly limit forensic engineers from testifying as independent experts at trial. We value our independence, as do our clients.
