Our Work

Public Interest works hand-in-hand with a diverse range of clients interested in social change and innovation in the public and not-for-profit sectors.

Our approach reflects our values and our objectives, both of which are focused on building the capacities of the organizations we work with and the people they serve. We work to overcome barriers such as language, culture and race that have prevented people from fully participating in the process. We innovate to find approaches that reflect real needs and priorities and produce long-lasting, positive impacts for our clients and the communities they serve. We create opportunities for the people affected by our work to have a meaningful voice in decision-making.
