Welcome to Kairos Creative Solutions Inc.

a consulting firm that designs and delivers strategic stakeholder and indigenous engagement programs for corporate clients, regulatory agencies and three levels of government.

Stakeholder and Indigenous Engagement

Each project is unique. We develop and implement engagement programs designed to balance our client's business plans with the needs of the community. We ensure that people are involved in meaningful dialogues, that issues are identified and resolved proactively, and that documentation relevant to the permitting process is maintained.


When conflicts arise, the affected parties will typically take positions and propose solutions that meet their own needs. We guide parties to fully explore and understand the other's point of view. With an increased understanding of the various perspectives to their problem, parties will then have the opportunity to develop innovative and mutually acceptable solutions to resolve their dispute.


Regardless of the arena in which you work, IAP2’s Foundations in Public Participation can broaden your toolkit and bring greater creativity to your approach. This programme will give you a broad-based understanding of how public participation works across the world.

Foundations is right for anyone working for or involved in public participation and community engagement projects.

Guidance, research and writing support, for project applications in a regulated environment, including application development; engagement activity reporting; and information requests response-writing.

Moment of Opportunity

Moment of Opportunity

Kairos is a Greek word, interpreted to mean the "moment of opportunity", as described in the following story:

As an archer pulls back on his bow, there is a precise moment when the arrow is in perfect alignment with the target. Success requires that the archer's arrow be fired not only accurately but with enough power for it to penetrate. It is said that a person who has the gift of Kairos not only senses such a moment, but seizes it as an opportunity to hit their target with each and every attempt.
