  • Consultants First

    CFN focuses on providing excellent consulting advice to both our private sector clients as well as the government.  We are not political lobbyists.  However, some support requested by our clients does involve activities defined as ‘lobbying’ in Canada and we comply strictly with the requirements of the Lobbying Act.  Throughout, our focus is on ‘navigating’ the bureaucracy of government, from which requirements and projects most often evolve.
