Public Sector
Building on our private sector experience, we help various government departments, agencies and Crown corporations comply with statutory and other external requirements, and instil sound administrative and financial management practice designed to ensure efficient, effective and ethical use of their resources, in order to better fulfill their mission to the public.

We understand the challenges public sector entities must often contend with, such as uncertainty in budget funding, re-directed project objectives and frequent scope changes, administration turnover, political expectations, etc. We help our clients overcome these complex issues, manage priorities and make the right decisions while leveraging existing resources to make an impact now and on future generations.

High Tech
The rapidly changing world of technology requires flexible, yet strong management practices, rapid innovation, reduced time to market, and the application of best practices in all key aspects of the organization.

Achieving superior competitive advantage comes as a result of a correctly defined and implemented customer focused business strategy. In the current context, managing risks while building on emerging opportunities is key to ensuring continuous and profitable growth for a technology-based company.

We help our clients understand where the risks lie (e.g., vendor/supplier relationships; innovation; changing legislative environment; competitors; information leakages etc.) and how they can be mitigated. More so, we assist companies in determining what is core to their business in order to better control processes and risks while continuing to create shareholder value.

We believe that asking the right questions allows clients to better align with changing customer requirements and rapidly evolving technological solutions, and to eliminate inefficiencies. By assisting our clients reduce the risks associated with their business, we are considerably diminishing the time they spend reacting to the consequences of those risks. As a result, our clients are able to continue focusing on serving their customers, and on capturing value for all stakeholders involved in the cycle, i.e., customers, suppliers and vendors, employees and management.

Financial Services
Faced with a very competitive and complex Canadian banking environment, blurring barriers between the life insurance and banking sectors, uncertainty in the debt and equity markets, recent mergers and acquisitions taking place in the financial services space, today's banks need to focus on high-quality customer service and long-term relationship building, tailored value propositions, and on recognizing information technology as a major driver in the financial services industry.

In order to be successful, chartered banks and Credit Unions alike need to adopt new banking technologies and alternative service delivery methods and channels. However, achieving the goal of technological supremacy in transaction processing at a significantly reduced cost comes with its own challenges.

We help our financial industry clients reconstruct and automate their business processes to maximize efficiency, by re-aligning business reporting and approval practices to ensure centralized monitoring of enterprise risk. We also assist them with the development of sound and robust risk management processes, thus enabling them to identify, assess, measure and respond to technology risks in a proactive and effective manner. As a results, our financial sector clients are able to strengthen their business-critical applications' and systems' security, reliability, availability and recoverability.
