BMG’s capacity to help government clients reach their objectives is anchored by our consultants who have led and managed key government initiatives and priorities. Our consultants have had a direct role in working with the federal, provincial, and municipal governments in a variety of roles.
We have demonstrated experience helping clients navigate government programs and to access provincial and federal funding under partnership programs such as the Building Canada Fund, Green Infrastructure Fund, Rural Connections, Canada 150 Community Infrastructure, the Canada-Ontario Affordable Housing Initiative programs, Social Housing Capital Repair Program, Canada-Ontario Municipal Rural Investment Fund, and others.
BMG’s team has extensive experience working with grant proposals from every aspect to ensure maximum access to funding opportunities. As managers who were responsible for designing programs and selecting proposals for evaluation, our team knows what decision makers are looking for in choosing one proposal over another in terms of how it addresses overall strategy, outcome and impacts. We ensure proposals are clear, concise and on target, and we provide expert advice on the government decision-making process based on our strong knowledge of government priories, operations, and structures.
Our combined expertise in assisting clients to access funding programs and comply with performance and reporting requirements enables our clients to obtain valuable resources and insights for planning future partnerships and financial arrangements with government.
BMG provides value to our clients in:
Leaders of organizations find that their strategic plans make sense but are a challenge to implement. Why? Answers often lie in the process of strategic planning.
A client driven process where we assist through facilitating dialogue with stakeholders, partners and organizational staff to identify the core strategic objectives and values. We design action plans to move the organization towards its goals.
Organizations are expected to demonstrate value and outcomes. At BMG, we design performance measurement frameworks and measures tailored to your organization’s needs.
