Understanding a community’s strengths and engaging its members in the process are vital parts of successful community development projects.
Coordination of business retention and expansion projects
We understand that business retention and expansion (BR+E) initiatives play an essential role in creating strong local economies. We work with clients to engage local business communities by providing strategic BR+E project coordination, survey analysis, and useful insight into how to attract and retain thriving local businesses.
Our team’s multidisciplinary expertise gives us unique insight into the opportunities created by downtown revitalization. We help our clients to achieve their goals for creating vibrant downtown neighbourhoods that are centres of community, cultural and economic activity.
Our work almost always includes stakeholder or community consultation. We work closely with our clients to engage communities through town halls, community conversations, focus groups, one-on-one interviews, surveys, and workshops that inform successful projects.
