This unique relationshipallows us to deliver services that respond to your specific needs. We understandthe pressures on your time – you can count on us to provide completely impartialbriefings in the right format, where and when you need them.The pages that follow illustrate the kind of work we can do for you: 27 conciseand easy-to-read briefings on subjects ranging from cybercrime to the impact ofdemographic changes on public policy. The issues are presented in summary form andrepresent just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our subject-matter expertise.We encourage you to contact our Central Enquiries Service at 613-995-1166 for furtherassistance with confidential verbal or written briefings, analysis or information.The sheer volume of information presented at the beginning of a new Parliamentmay be stimulating, but taking it all in can be a challenge.
