At C2K, planning is doing. We meaningfully engage communities and improve mutual understanding among diverse stakeholders to build buy-in. From there, we develop a strategic plan and support its implementation.
We facilitate interagency collaboration from building a common agenda and effective teams, to formalizing and scaling projects. We are especially interested in initiatives that partner with clients and communities.
We develop training materials for our clients that applies the science of learning and change management. We also offer training on facilitation, serving trans and non-binary clients, and front-line leadership. For more see the C2K Academy.

Connect2Knowledge is located on unceded Algonquin, Anishnabek territory; as users of that land, we take responsibility for the perpetuation of colonial systems and accept responsibility to advance reconciliation and decolonization through our personal and professional lives.
