Home About About Us

Across Canada, Watson has worked closely with over 250 municipalities, utilities and school boards to grow and sustain better economies and communities.

For the past four decades, we have led the industry by evolving our offerings to meet the needs of our public and private sector market.

Our clients partner with us to identify and solve complex challenges, make informed strategic choices and better understand the long-term outcomes.

We are a dynamic team of specialists, made up of municipal economists, urban planners and accountants with a diverse set of skills. We have expertise developing solutions in municipal finance, education and land economics – including asset management, ward boundary studies, development charge policies, demographic forecasting studies and economic assessments.

Our project teams are tailored to ensure a personalized and focused approach. This allows us to be responsive, collaborative and innovative – and stay dedicated to producing the highest quality results.

We work to protect the economic assets and interests of every client we serve. Our ability to collect, distill and interpret the right data allows us to develop key insights and strategic solutions that make a difference.
