A breakwater provides protection and safe harbour along coastlines, allowing communities to develop and thrive in the face of inclement conditions. The image of this physical infrastructure represents what we try to do as an organization.
Breakwater Group is a consulting cooperative of academics, researchers and former public servants from rich and diverse professional backgrounds. Based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, we are a multi-disciplinary group of professionals with extensive experience in law, academia, governance, economics, Indigenous and Treaty rights and project management.
Breakwater strives to provide communities, organizations and governments with the tools and capacity to protect and safeguard their cultural heritage, knowledge, and other resources. Our approach is strength-based. We work closely with stakeholders to build on existing assets and identify and develop the necessary tools and strategies to further political, economic and social objectives.
