Strong Roots Consulting

Strong Roots Consulting cultivates social change by helping organizations that work for good – non-profits, charities, social enterprises, and cooperatives – do better. With core skills in program evaluation and strategic planning, we work alongside changemakers to grow our understanding of communities and complex issues, develop responsive and effective initiatives, and build the capacity to learn and grow.

We are based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, and acknowledge our presence on Treaty 6 territory and the homeland of the Métis.
