Neilson Strategies helps local governments collaborate in establishing services that are both effective and resilient. The firm is also called upon to conduct service reviews aimed at restructuring shared services to meet changing conditions.
In response to changing local service needs, questions about governance, changes in local demographics, economic shifts, and other factors, a local government may wish to reconsider its existing legal structure or geographic boundary.
Issues arise regularly in all areas of local government service and policy. Neilson Strategies works with local decision-makers to assess and understand the issues, identify and evaluate optional courses of action, and present recommendations.
In 2020, Neilson Strategies was retained to assist the Comox Valley Regional District in preparing a Background Study aimed at determining the feasibility of a new Regional Parks Service for the Comox Valley
Neilson Strategies was incorporated in 2002 as Neilson-Welch Consulting Inc. The firm works exclusively with municipalities, regional districts and public bodies involved in the provision of local services.
