Founded in 1997, GEF Consulting Inc. is a Toronto-based boutique management and IT consultancy firm that provides services to both Public and Private sector clients on complex engagements. GEF’s consulting experience within the Ontario Public Sector and on the international stage has been profound and extensive. While our roots will always be Canadian, our footprint is growing internationally as clients learn about our capabilities.
Values and Mission
Our values of honesty, integrity and commitment to delivery are important to us. We are genuine in all our dealings with clients and are deeply committed to our contractors and our employees.
Our mission statement is to empower Governments and Organizations using innovation methods, tools and processes in the age of transformation.
At GEF, we strive for excellence and aim to exceed expectations. Our corporate philosophy and the way we work is underpinned by the following tenets:
we adhere to the highest ethical standards in both external and internal relationships – this is non-negotiable.
Disciplined & Focused:
we do not try to be everything to everyone – we only focus in our areas of competence and where our capabilities are world class. We pride ourselves in finishing what we started, without sacrificing quality.
Think Long Term:
we seek to develop long term strategic relationships with our clients and suppliers. As an extension of your team we see ourselves as partners.
we do not want or have ever intended to be a large consulting firm – this enables us to be responsive, more proactive and able to go above and beyond every day to drive the results our clients want.
GEF focuses on four vertical markets:
Healthcare / Digital Health
Public Sector / Government (Canadian Provincial & Federal)
Service Offerings / Practices
