Business Process Improvement

Do you have a product, technology or service that you want to launch? We can help you evaluate your market potential, create strategies to access the market and navigate regulatory requirements. Once your product has been launched in Canada, we can help you access global markets through Provincial and Federal support services and by successfully meeting all regulatory requirements along the way.

Commercialization Management

As a trained International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) practitioner, we can help you to involve those who are affected by a decision in the decision-making process whether your goal is active engagement or legislative requirements. Public participation promotes sustainable decisions by providing participants with the information they need to be involved in a meaningful way, and it communicates to participants how their input affects the decision.

The practice of public participation might involve public meetings, surveys, open houses, workshops, polling, citizen’s advisory committees and other forms of direct involvement with the public.
