Every day, Governments across Canada make decisions that impact your organization in ways that you may or may not be fully aware of. Whether it is proposed regulatory or legislative change, funding opportunities or procurement opportunities, you need to have timely and reliable intelligence to help you make the right decisions to move your organization forward. 

Effective Public Policy Competitive Intelligence provides clarity in the decision-making process by monitoring the points of contact between your organization and all levels of government. This is an all-encompassing process that involves collecting current data, applying stringent fact-based analysis and then framing this information in a context that is relevant, if not vital, for an organization’s long-term success.

Learn how to navigate the dynamic, ever-changing landscape of public policy and how to most effectively stream-line your organizations’ interactions with government.
