Supporting good governance, planning and evaluation in the Yukon since 2010.

StrategyNorth Testimonials

Yukon Learn hired Travis to do our strategic plan in 2019, based on a recommendation. The board was so impressed with the guiding principles and methodology he used to create it, that we rehired him in 2022 to create our new plan. Travis goes above and beyond with his work. He has extensive knowledge in economics, strategy, and planning, including with NGOs like Yukon Learn. He is also a great person to work with, and we will continue to seek his strategic advice in the future.

Julie Anne Ames, Executive Director
Yukon Learn Society

Travis has done great and efficient work for us over the years, and as a volunteer, he has supported our NGO professional development series since 2015 by providing strategic planning and evaluation workshops that are well appreciated by our members. I look forward to continuing a working relationship with StrategyNorth on future projects. Do not hesitate to work with Travis, great value!"

Why StrategyNorth?

Over 30 years of experience.

Experience matters. As a governance-based economist, Travis has been advising Councils, Boards and executive teams for over 30 years.

Broad sectoral experience.

Travis has worked in the NWT, Nunavut and the Yukon across a wide-range of sectors, including housing, tourism, conservation, social justice, small business, agriculture and economic development.

Quality research and presentation.

Travis recognizes that hastily-assembled solutions do not build solid foundations for lasting impact. Travis works with your team to understand the operating environment and the needs of those who rely on your organization’s programs and services.

20 years in the Yukon.

Understanding the unique cultural, economic and environmental values of Yukoners is critical to developing and implementing ‘made in the Yukon’ solutions. Southern consultancies likely face a steep and time-consuming learning curve, time better used for getting on with the work.

Respectful Relationships with Yukon First Nations.

Travis has gratefully had opportunities to support Yukon First Nations governments and their citizens, including the Kwanlin Dün First Nation, the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation, the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council, the Carcross/Tagish First Nation and the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation.
