Who Are We?
We are an Indigenous-owned consulting group that works with Indigenous and local communities in Canada and beyond to provide high quality research, policy, planning, mapping, negotiation, and advisory services. Our work focuses on culture, health, socio-economics, ecology, and governance to support the rights and interests of Indigenous communities.
We work for Indigenous communities
Firelight works only for Indigenous and local communities, or on projects where communities support our participation.
We provide research, guidance, and support through all stages of environmental assessments, negotiations, and community policy and planning.
We build capacity in communities, by training and mentoring through all stages of our work.
We are committed to high quality, objective, evidence-based, peer-reviewed research, and to providing deliverables that are timely, relevant, effective, and respected by all parties.
We give back to the communities we work with by supporting culturally, politically, or ecologically important initiatives. Learn more about social return…

Before working with Firelight I had never collected any traditional land values. They walked me through the process and gave me all the knowledge I need to perform direct-to-digital mapping, including what I would need to direct… The staff are friendly and professional, and I look forward to continuing working with them.
