What we do
Empowered Nations Thrive.
Warshield empowers community leadership with capacity-training and ongoing mentorship, ensuring communities have a strong, unified voice asserting their rights and interests, and the best tools to build strategies that work for them.
First Nations leadership is complex. Each portfolio area has its own particular network and challenges. The Warshield team has knowledge and experience that can help leadership navigate these areas in order to deliver results and advance each Nation’s unique goals.
2-Day Strategy Session for Leadership
10 hours of workshopping and strategy on a customized agenda, unique to each Nation, and an action-focused strategic report. Governance training and capacity development.
3-Day Orientation for Newly-Elected Leadership
15 hours of workshopping and portfolio-focused strategy sessions directed at implementation, and an action-focused strategic report. Governance training and capacity development.
We work with leadership to achieve their unique goals, in real time.
We believe in sustainable development that benefits future generations. We can help develop policies, strategies, and action plans that lead to measurable increases in ESG and sustainability metrics.
Conflict Management & Mediation
We strive to hear all voices, and work with Nations to find common ground and real solutions.
Lobbying & Government Relations
We develop strategy, provide regulatory advice, and connect Nations with the provincial and federal government departments that can help them advance their priorities.
We work with Nations to develop strategy that advances their goals related to individual business and/or community economic development.
We develop communications tools that connect with people, government, and industry (branding, marketing, creative strategy, web design & development, and more).
