Our Team


Our team’s credentials include Graduate Degrees in Public Health, Public Administration, Human Nutrition, Political Science, Economics, Sociology and Gerontology. 

Members of our team have completed the San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training through the Provincial Health Services Authority in British Columbia and all team members are involved in regular professional development. Over the past several years we have focused on developing our capacity to incorporate methodologies such as Social Network Analysis, Case Study story telling, and data visualization. We also maintain relationships with a number of researchers and consultants who bring specific skills and areas of expertise to the projects we work on.
