At C2K, planning is doing. We meaningfully engage communities and improve mutual understanding among diverse stakeholders to build buy-in. From there, we develop a strategic plan and support its implementation.

Project management


We facilitate interagency collaboration from building a common agenda and effective teams, to formalizing and scaling projects. We are especially interested in initiatives that partner with clients and communities.

Co-design workshops


We start by defining a design challenge and creating a space where both staff and community members feel comfortable working together. We then translate their work into concrete results, like communication products and service design.



Training for front-line staff that is learner-centred and available on demand. Current topics include serving trans and non-binary clients and front-line leadership. A portion of every sale goes to support local by and for initiatives.

Connect2Knowledge is founded on the belief that not-for-profits can influence systems towards complex equity goals like inclusive communities, wellness, and affordable quality housing. We support this work by maximizing interagency collaboration and client-provider partnerships. Our work is guided by three principles.

 1. Collective responsibility starts at home

 2. Connection builds community

 3. Try. Fail. Learn. Repeat
