We provide our multifaceted approach and innovative tactics. Our services are scale-able – we can train your team, be your team, or become embedded in your team.
House of Blue Skies Consulting can provide strategic advice and training – or take a lead role – in the engagement, consultation, and negotiations with both non-Indigenous and Indigenous communities.
As a part of your team, we can provide advice and recommendations to develop project buy-in and ultimately achieve regulatory approval and social licence to operate.
Whether you’re just starting out on your project, or you’re in the middle of a PR nightmare, we have the skills necessary to guide you through next steps and get your project back on track, on time and on budget.
We can help you navigate the complexities of Indigenous consultation within Canada.
Engagement covers all manner of dialogue and outreach including:
- Stakeholder Engagement & Relations
- Public Consultation & Public Participation Plans
- Community Engagement
- Indigenous Engagement & Consultation
- Community Investment
- Open Houses, Lunch & Learns, and Coffee Talks
- Conflict Resolution
- Event Planning (large or small, we’ve planned them all!)
We have engaged with thousands of stakeholders and hundreds of communities throughout western Canada (and in the United States) including community organizations, local governments, municipalities, regional districts, Members of Parliament, and Members of the Legislative Assembly.
Including Indigenous communities in your project engagement early is paramount to project success.
We can provide guidance to your existing team or be your main point of contact and manage relationships with Indigenous communities on your behalf.
With honesty, trust, and integrity, it is possible to have genuine, meaningful engagement.
Show that you say what you mean, mean what you say, and care about the perspective of your communities and stakeholders.
