In a complex world an interdisciplinary team is required to solve complex problems. Therefore, our solitary mission is to make the public and policy makers aware of the issues Canada faces.

We are the nexus for unbiased research that will be used to help protect the way of life we currently enjoy. Our work sustains, and enhances, our livelihood through our mission of being the leader of true interdisciplinary research, all of which requires a truly interdisciplinary team. Unfortunately, most research performed today is conducted from a mindset that is out-dated. Namely, research looks at issues through a singular lens, not understanding the implications of how decisions affect issues through differing contexts. The “specialists” and “experts” may very well be the best for “that issue” but by not consideration the implications of their work across different contexts, the viability and applicability of their research because questionable and unfortunately, in many cases, inapplicable.

We all believe that we have a debt to pay back to Canada and we recognize that the work we do today may take decades to come to fruition.
