Our Approach

We are guided by three core principles:

1. Social first. 

We are committed to sustainable organizations, measurable social outcomes, and continuous learning. We apply a public health lens to our work and keep the social determinants of health at the centre of how we measure social impact. 

2. Evidence-based. 

Evidence is essential for good decisions. Our job is to help you gather the right data, and translate that data into information that supports evidence-based decision-making. 

3. Respect.

We are trusted keepers of information. We hold this trust as sacred, following strict protocols for confidentiality, privacy and ethics. We respect that organizations are busy and are committed to meeting organizations where they are at and offering useful and appropriate services.
