Change is inevitable.

Meaningful change is hard. Qatalyst can help.

A Qatalyst for Change

Recent developments, particularly the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement, have brought people together in new ways, increased our appreciation of how much society is changing, and demonstrated just how much further progress we need to make.

We are fortunate at Qatalyst. Every day, we have the opportunity to work with incredible people in government, Indigenous organizations, the non-profit sector and private sector who are dedicated to doing more to make society better through their programs and services.

Their dedication has challenged us to improve how we do business, so we can better assist them to do theirs. We’ve changed our operating model so we can more quickly and cost-effectively match clients with the diverse, multi-disciplinary teams of specialists they need. We’ve broadened our range of services to enable us to not only prepare strategies for improvement but also, when needed, assist clients to implement those strategies and track the results. We’ve made significant investments in new proprietary tools and technologies. And, most importantly, we have reaffirmed our commitment to making a difference. We did not get into in this business to provide advice or prepare reports; we exist to support our clients in their missions to make society work better for everyone.

Changing the Industry for Everyone

We see a need to change how the consulting industry works. We believe it’s time for a new model, one that works better for both clients and consultants.

Our Clients

Clients face complex and challenging issues. We saw the need for a mechanism that can better connect clients with the specialized expertise they need, and support those consulting teams with leading-edge tools, technologies, management and research capabilities. Qatalyst is that mechanism. In developing teams, we can now draw from our network of over 150 staff members and associates located across Canada and internationally. Better teams, supported by better systems and better technology, drive better results for our clients.

Our Associates

COVID-19 accelerated two related trends. First, in this era of the gig economy, more and more consultants choose to work independently or in small firms. Second, more and more people work remotely. We have responded by creating a fully-digitized, distributed work model. The Qatalyst Platform is an online portal that better enables our associates to form teams, access opportunities, communicate and collaborate with others, and access the support they need.

Our Mission

We are not in business to deliver services. Our mission is to create meaningful change. We measure the effectiveness of each assignment by identifying what changes resulted from our work and evaluating the impact of those changes on the client organization and their stakeholders, clients, employees and partners.
