Problems we solve

Budgeting and Finance

We have helped hundreds of decision-makers find alignment and educate residents around what it takes to make budget decisions. Our budgeting solutions span projects from granting and investing, budget prioritization, participatory budgeting, capital project initiatives to property assessments.

Governance and Policy

We’ve worked with political parties and candidates to find consensus and decide on conflicting initiatives. We’ve supported cities, indigenous communities and health organizations develop policies, grant permits, and reach agreements ranging from developing local bylaws and zoning initiatives to shaping international policy.


Good planning is the foundation of any successful project. We have helped cities build Official Community Plans, Strategic plans, Environmental Master Plans, Climate Action Plans, Transportation and Waste management plans, and even property development plans.
