Consultation, Training, and Custom Supports

Everything You Need To Move Your Program Forward


The fields of evaluation, policy research, strategic planning, governance training, and economic development have greatly evolved over the past five years.  At Johnston Research, we too have changed.  While we are still providing our line of third party consulting services, we are excited to announce that we have launched a new line of training and customized support services and tools.

Having worked with over 500 organizations, First Nations programs and government departments, we have learned first-hand that what works well in one organization is not necessarily transferable.  With over 20 years of experience conducting evaluation and facilitating training in Indigenous contexts, we can tailor a specific set of tools and support services geared directly to your organization’s needs.  We utilize a set of benchmarks that guide our evaluation work, and through our experience working with over 180 programs, we can provide guidance to nurture an organization/program as it develops and grows.
