June 6, 2020, Calgary, Alta. – It is during challenging times that Albertan’s greatest capabilities and innovative ideas come to life – and the strongest community bonds are shown. Catch Engineering is proud to be part of this innovative project with Exergy and other Albertan companies to make a positive impact for all Albertan’s during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While Exergy was in the process of developing a ventilator for Alberta Health Services, they needed the support of an Electrical and Software Engineer and Jason George of Catch Engineering was a perfect match. In under six short weeks, the project grew rapidly. It established a network of professionals, including engineers and technologists from Alberta and British Columbia, each contributing their own unique expertise critical to the project’s success. Jason George supervised the electrical and software engineering of the device and engaged additional Catch team members for device certification. In the end, the team developed the first Canadian-designed emergency ventilator approved by Health Canada.
“This was our way of making a positive impact in very challenging times. It is never easy seeing someone on a ventilator or watching someone struggle so if we can make any part of these moments easier, it is our duty to do so. Alberta has an abundance of innovative minds and this was the perfect way of utilizing everyone’s special skills for an amazing cause.”
– Jason George, P.Eng., Vice-President, Catch Engineering

May 19, 2016, Calgary, Alta. — Catch Engineering is pleased to support Laval St. Germain’s Atlantic solo ocean expedition #ConfrontCancerOceanRow.St. Germain will leave the safety of the Halifax harbour and embark on a 4500 km solo row across the Atlantic Ocean commencing mid-June. Chad Smith, Executive Vice President with Catch Engineering says, “Laval is a remarkable athlete. The backbreaking work that he’ll be challenged with during this momentous adventure is extraordinary. Catch Engineering is thrilled to trouble-shoot (if) any electrical issues should come up on his journey.”
With the ability to communicate with St. Germain via satellite phone, it will make it easier for Catch Engineering to help out with any electrical or instrumentation challenges that he may encounter. Before the epic row, Catch Engineering had the opportunity to identify possible areas that could result in critical electrical failure. Equipment such as solar panels, batteries, chargers and wiring that St. Germain will rely on are going to be subject to extremely harsh conditions. Smith says, “Some of the electrical equipment on board is imperative to the success of his navigation. We’re confident in our team of electrical engineers who will be available during his trip to make sure he stays on track.”
St. Germain is a Calgary-based adventurer and outdoor athlete. In the real world he’s a husband, father and Boeing 737 captain for Canadian North Airlines. He’s also the only Canadian to have climbed Mt. Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen. He has climbed and skied off Iraq’s highest peak, cycled from the Arctic Ocean to Yukon in winter and – among other adventures – has climbed the highest mountains on six of the world’s seven continents.
This particular adventure is not only an extension of St. Germain’s passion to excel, it’s to raise funds and awareness toward the Alberta Cancer Foundation – with all money raised going to the Tom Baker Cancer Clinical Trials. Cancer has affected the Catch family. Smith says, “This is a way for us to honour our friends and colleagues whose lives have been touched with cancer. The more money invested in clinical trials means increased progress. With more money, more trials are funded and more people have access to life-saving treatments.”
Nicola O’Carroll Development Officer with The Alberta Cancer Foundation says, “We work to give all Albertans access to the best clinical trials without having to leave the province.” As 43 Albertans a day are diagnosed with cancer, Laval St. Germain says, “This row is a way for me to give back to my community, family and friends who are fighting.” Catch Engineering echoes the same sentiments.
