Stakeholder Consultation Services

We’re good listeners. And we know how to get the information you need.

We’re here to help you find the people who care most about your topic, understand why it’s important to them, and what they think are the best policy outcomes. Our stakeholder consultation services include:

  • Facilitating public meetings & interest group consultations
  • Conducting key informant interviews and workshops
  • Organizing and facilitating focus groups


Among the dozens of evidence-based, values-driven stakeholder consultations we’ve led or supported are:

The Renewal of Trust in Residential Construction: Commission of Inquiry into the Quality of Condominium Construction in B.C.

We directed and managed communications support to 29 public hearings in Vancouver, Surrey, Victoria, Nanaimo and Kelowna, receiving more than 730 written submissions and hundreds more oral presentations by homeowners, industry groups and technical experts.
