About Us

Our History

Qatalyst represents a new name and a new operating model for a firm with a long operating history. Under our former name, FWCO Management Consultants, we have been providing management consulting services to public, non-profit and private sector clients across Canada for more than 30 years, first through our former subsidiary, Ference Weicker & Company Ltd., and more recently in association with Goss Gilroy Inc.

We would like to acknowledge that our headquarters is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the ʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations. We are grateful and fortunate to live and work on this beautiful land.

Story Telling

A wise man once said, "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted." When used appropriately, stories are a more powerful tool than numbers or percentages.

Big Picture

In managment consulting, we often focus on microscopic views of issues. We are, after all, hired to dig deep and analyse data. However, we seek to find only relevant solutions: those that really matter.
