About Us

Lichen is more than just a consulting company – it’s a network of talented professionals with the right expertise to meet your needs. We work with non-profits, governments, and businesses to mobilize communities in northern, western, and eastern Canada. We offer our clients thoughtful strategy, engagement, and analysis that moves people. 

Our collaborative approach is embedded in our name. Just like the lichen in our natural environment, our team’s success is the result of our commitment to working together – with each other, our clients, and the communities we live in.

At Lichen, we strive to play an active role in building healthy, connected, and diverse communities. To do that, we form mutually beneficial relationships that help to identify, strengthen, and share community assets for future generations.

We expertly navigate nuance and complexity, remaining open and curious about the unique challenges facing our clients and the opportunities that can spring from them. Our experience and expertise allows us to take a systems approach to delivering change, ensuring the long-term viability and sustainability of the solutions we deliver.

Lichen Consulting was founded in 2016 and is headquartered in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Our team members have been recognized with several honours for our commitment to community, including a Certificate of Excellence from the City of Iqaluit.
