A key element to PACE's success is its extensive, leading-edge work in identifying the many drivers that influence policy. We enable our clients to manage these drivers in a way that leads to the adoption and uptake of their initiatives, ultimately leading to a more sustainable community.

Having been selected as part of the City of Ottawa's last three Standing Offers for Communications and Marketing Services (2006, 2006 and most recently 2010), the PACE Team has acquired significant experience working with municipalities, councils, local community service providers, businesses and residents.
