Canada/North and South America, Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East.
Throughout his career, Dale has successfully worked with various types of
financial institutions, local and offshore investors, stakeholders, and
shareholders. He has played a lead role in negotiating with governments,
investors, communities, special interest groups, and First Nations.
Dale uses his wide range of international experience to integrate new
technologies and concepts into on-going projects. He oversaw the design

working with private investors and the Tourism Department of the Federal

In the early 90s, Dale was Principal, President and CEO of a new lighting
technology company. Working with the National Research Council of
Canada and the University of Victoria, the company eventually

China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Australia and South Korea. Furthermore, Dale
currently sits on the board of directors of a start-up energy company,
Empire Hydrogen Energy Systems Inc.; a company that manufactures
hydrogen generators for internal combustion engines. This modern product
reduces fuel consumption, wear and tear on engine components and
virtually eliminates all polluting exhaust gases. Projects such as these highlight the value Dale Bellavance places on green and sustainable development initiatives.
