ASI is a Canadian-owned company that was founded in 1980 in response to increasing public awareness of the importance of the province's heritage.

ASI is seeking to employ people with a love for the outdoors who thrive in a physically demanding job. Our ideal candidate will be a team player, dependable, and have a positive attitude.

We start work early in the morning; you will need to meet a central location no later than 7 a.m to drive to the site or be on site by 8 a.m.
A working knowledge of archaeological field methods is not required for this position. We are happy to train you on identifying and processing artifacts recovered in the field and to recognize and interpret archaeological features and stratigraphy.
We work on tight-knit teams out in the field, so successful applicants must be able to work well in groups.
You will need excellent communication skills, both written and verbal.
Some jobs may require temporary out of town billeting, so flexibility is required.
