Sectors we serve
We’re experts in critical issues, communicating messages that are most critical to society and the economy.
Within the past five years alone, we have worked on more than 2,000 energy-sector projects. We have over 20 years of experience serving Ontario’s largest electric utilities, the Ontario Energy Board, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) and others, offering a unique depth of understanding of the industry.
From omni-channel campaigns to communication strategy to website development, much of our work focuses on achieving energy-efficiency goals for programs funded by the Ontario government. Many of these were complex campaigns, involving multi-channels, stakeholders and highly segmented B2B and B2C audiences.
As healthcare transforms, clarity is more important than ever. Faced with profound transformation, including digitization, an aging population and the biggest health system reform in years, clear communications are key.
With concise messaging and engaging creative, we help clients convey the most important health information, so that every Ontarian understands why it matters – and what it means for them.
Person-centric care has been at the heart of many projects we’ve contributed to, including the high-profile launch of the province’s Patient Ombudsman. From awareness campaigns and annual reports to branding projects and infographics, we make key data and insights more approachable.
Our work in the Finance sector is mostly in the regulatory and consumer education aspects of the industry. Given the sweeping changes in this sector, especially with the emergence of new fintech companies and investment vehicles, our clients count on us to create clear, concise and compelling brands, reports, infographics and websites.
Canada has a culture that is both diverse and complex. At Context Creative, we embrace this richness with inquisitiveness and respect. Over the last 10 years, we have designed numerous and award-winning stamp series for Canada Post, celebrating everything from the Group of Seven to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Other highlights include our work with First Nations, Inuit and Métis organizations supporting the growth of Trail Tourism in Ontario, and several exhibit designs for the Archives of Ontario.
As higher education becomes increasingly commoditized, universities are seeking new ways to differentiate programs, deliver value and strengthen connections with stakeholders and students. Over the years, we have worked with both higher institutions and non-profit educational organizations.
From large-scale websites to marketing campaigns and reports, we act as partners to help clients and their stakeholders lay order to complex ideas and projects.
