At Davis Pier, we work collaboratively with our clients to improve their organizations and the services they provide.

We deliver meaningful outcomes through learning our clients’ business, understanding their challenges, generating actionable solutions, and supporting implementation.

Here are some examples of our work:

New Model of  Emergency Care

We worked with a client in the healthcare sector that faced significant issues with the delivery of emergency care, specifically in rural areas to design and implement new models of care for improved delivery that leveraged existing hospital, community, and paramedic resources.  Our team assisted with the design of a new model for rural emergency care and subsequently led the implementation of eight new centres across the province. Our role included data analysis, project management, implementation planning, communications, and change management.  An independent evaluation of the model noted the strong implementation as a key contributor to the model’s early success.

Employment Services Transformation

Working with a provincial government client, our team was integral in the redesign and transformation of employment services in the province. This involved strategy development, service model design, data analytics, change management and the engagement of external services providers, and overall management of the implementation. This transformation has been a viewed as a best practice in other provinces in Canada and the team was the recipient of an award for public sector excellence.

Corporate Registry Modernization

Our client engaged Davis Pier to provide strategic guidance, design, and implementation expertise in the transformation of the provincial corporate and business registry. This project will result in providing businesses with the ability to register, incorporate and conduct routine business transactions online – anywhere, at any time. The government-to-business  relationship will be significantly simplified through the development of new laws, processes, services, and technology. Davis Pier is providing project management, system design and testing support, communications support and change management guidance as our client  implements a fully digital and streamlined services experience for entrepreneurs and businesses.

Trade and Competitiveness

Our work with international financial institutions and their clients has spanned over 10 countries and has included projects related to improving the regulatory and service environment for the delivery of government services to business clients in order to improve the economic environment. These projects have involved business registration, business licensing and permitting, secured transaction/collateral registration, and e-government services. Our focus has been on regulatory, process and technology assessments, and the development of strategic roadmaps that incorporate recommendations based on international best practices.

Social Assistance Reform

Davis Pier was integral in supporting our client in the redesign of the income assistance (welfare) system within the province. Our work included the analysis of various approaches to income support, such as basic income, tax programming, social assistance, and other special needs. Our objective was to redesign the client experience, employment programs, and risk management and compliance model. We designed a new approach to determining client needs through the development of a predictive client segmentation model and advanced assessment tool to support case management. 

Women’s Leadership Development Program

Davis Pier has developed a women’s leadership development program for the women at a private sector mining company. This program will be delivered across their operations in North, Central and South America and made accessible to women at all levels of the company to ensure that they are receiving the appropriate personal and professional development opportunities. As part of the organization’s diversity and inclusion strategy, this program will provide participants with the skills they need to work and live to their fullest potential.
