We build digital civic and social impact tools that spark change. Our Project Canvas is a turn-key solution for organizations to beautifully showcase their impact projects online and easily engage their audience.

We created the Project Canvas because as urban design professionals, we were often tasked with managing complex civic projects and community engagement and we felt that the traditional way of conducting this work was wrought with inefficiencies.

As we talked to our peers, we began to further appreciate the kinds of challenges they face while running projects: project managers are pressed for time, it's hard to stay organized, they're not fully engaging their communities and measuring impact is a mystery.

The Project Canvas was created to solve these problems head-on.

As we talked to our peers, we began to further appreciate the kinds of challenges they face while running projects: project managers are pressed for time, it's hard to stay organized, they're not fully engaging their communities and measuring impact is a mystery.

The Project Canvas was created to solve these problems head-on.

The tool not only offers busy marketing, communications and project managers an easy, cost-effective way to organize the content of their impact projects, it also transforms their content into a more compelling and engaging web experience for their audience.

The secret sauce is in the structure of the Project Canvas. It's composed of 12+ content modules that were built specifically for impact projects. Managers pick and choose the modules that work for their project, input the content for each selected module, publish their Canvas and share it with their audience. Since projects evolve over time, managers can easily add, update or remove modules to meet their project's needs.

Managers also have the ability to dive deeper into audience engagement and enable people to get involved with their projects. With the Project Canvas, managers can fire off quick calls-to-action, launch a call for submissions from the public or gather eager participants.

The idea is that there's no one-size-fits all with engagement. It's vital to maximize reach, from engaging those who are super-hungry to get involved with projects to those who just want to casually follow along.

One of the best parts about the Project Canvas is that it's incredibly easy to use. Unlike other engagement tools out there, anyone can be up and running with their Canvas in minutes. There's no coding required and no need to hire an IT pro.

Since launching the Project Canvas six months ago, we've acquired amazing Canadian customers including the David Suzuki Foundation, Evergreen and the University of Toronto. We'd love to get our product into the hands of municipalities to increase public participation and engagement.
