Official languages and official language minority communities
We are one of Canada’s leading firms specializing in evaluations relating to official languages. We have extensive knowledge of official languages minority communities (OLMCs) and groups, as well as government strategies relating to linguistic duality and vitality of linguistic minority communities through education, health, access to justice, immigration, etc. We also understand the key roles that institutions and community organizations can play in these efforts.
Example of project in this area:
We have collaborated with the federal government in evaluating a number of programs engaging Indigenous communities. These programs relate to treaty rights, economic development, nutrition, public health, policing and access to justice.

Arts, culture and sport
We have conducted countless quantitative and qualitative data analyses for many arts and cultural sector clients.
At the national level, we have conducted in-depth analysis of Canadian Arts Data. At the local level, we have done research on engaging youth, teachers and the general public with symphonies and theatres, as well as economic impact studies of the arts and creative industries for local and provincial arts councils.
We also have considerable knowledge of the Canadian sport system, the web of federal-provincial-territorial sport policy and sport support programs. We have evaluated the government of Canada’s Sport Funding Programs on more than one occasion, and we have conducted reviews of the significant federal government investment in the Toronto 2015 Pan and Parapan American Games and in the 2010 Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic Games.
