Achieving effective citizen impact on public policy
Associations, unions, co-operatives and other citizens’
organizations face great challenges in their efforts to shape public
debate and influence government decision-making. Lacking the financial
resources, personnel capacity and high level access enjoyed by the
corporate world, the non-profit and voluntary sectors frequently
struggle to have their voices heard by government. Yet the need
for effective citizen impact on public policy has never been greater.
Maximizing the public influence of citizens’ organizations
Founded by seasoned professionals with deep
roots in the non-profit world, Civica specializes in working with
citizens’ organizations to heighten their impact on public
policy. We aid our clients in effectively engaging their members
