Incarna Consulting believes in giving more to our community than we receive. We believe the foundation of a healthy, thriving, and productive society is fair and equitable engagements, access to justice, and intentionally breaking down systemic and institutional barriers. We believe in proactive and preventative measures rather than reactive responses, and restorative justice over retributive systems. Incarna Consulting believes that everyone deserves to feel safe, included, and happy, no matter their geography, financial status, sexual orientation, gender, physical ability, race, or ethnicity. Incarna Consulting is built on the desire to serve and provide access to justice for all. Our mission is to provide alternative legal services to our clients and assist them in achieving long lasting solutions to disputes without involving the courts. Our vision is to build a community of practitioners and clients that are committed to the principles of restorative justice and conciliation.
Incarna Consulting has a commitment to building healthy communities that are safe and vibrant, with a strong economy and a sustainable environment. Through the true spirit of equality, access to justice, and self determination, we strive be a leader in improving the health and wellbeing of all people, with an innate respect for diversity and pluralism, through combatting discrimination, advocating for the rights of the vulnerable, and nurturing the cultural mosaic that is the foundation of Canada.
Canada is a country founded through colonial practices, which has had a long standing, devastating effect upon our Indigenous Peoples, and as we are based upon the homeland of the Metis and Treaty Six territory, it is vital for Incarna Consulting to place a special and intentional focus on our relationship with Indigenous Peoples. We are acutely aware of the impact that the colonial actions of our predecessors have had on Indigenous Peoples, including the residential school system, and we remain committed to understanding their implications on programming, systems, and accessibility. We are committed to co-designing our practices with our Indigenous neighbours to address the systemic inequalities embedded in our society. Incarna Consulting is committed to playing our role in addressing the Calls to Action that have been made by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, specifically those pertaining to Child Welfare (CTAs 1-5) and Justice (CTAs 25-42 and 50).
Incarna Consulting is a modern company, operating in a modern business climate. We pride ourselves on our innovation and novel practices that minimize our environmental impact and consumption of resources. Wherever possible, Incarna Consulting conducts its business digitally to reduce the need for paper products and toner, and costly storage space for documents which not only wastes space that could be used productively, but also draws upon utilities unnecessarily. In addition, all paper that has been shredded is composted to divert waste. All electronic products are Energy Star certified, our lighting is LED, and we use high efficiency appliances. Furthermore, Incarna Consulting utilizes coworking space to decrease their physical footprint and conducts business via secure online videoconferencing systems whenever possible to avoid travel. We are a passionate voice for the promotion and creation of multi-use space, coworking organizations, and cost sharing initiatives in rural Saskatchewan as a means of sustainable and innovative economic development that bolsters small communities.
Incarna Consulting operates a trauma-informed, accessibility, and LGBT+ sensitive practice. We design our processes, systems, and how we interact with our clients based on their individual needs and personal feelings of safety and comfort. We do not presume to know what will or will not work for any one individual, rather, we ask what people need in order to have the best possible experience and feel as though they are valued and respected in a physically and emotionally safe space.
discrimination free zone
Incarna Consulting does not tolerate racism, bigotry, sexism, or harassment and/or discrimination of any kind. Wherever possible, we seek to educate and inform parties rather than censure for ignorance, however we embody a zero-tolerance policy for overt, intentional discrimination by any member of our staff, suppliers, or clients to any other member of society. Our values of equality and fairness eclipse any economic advantage we may experience by turning a blind eye.
self determination and a healthy workplace
Incarna Consulting believes that employees play a vital role in the success of a business and their own personal accomplishments. We encourage all staff to adhere to a proper work-life balance that incorporates self-care, wellness strategies, and time for rest. Incarna Consulting is a results-oriented firm that allows employees the freedom to work the hours and format that best suits them, provided they meet their goals and responsibilities in an appropriate time period. We reward high quality work with competitive pay and incentives, but also provide all employees the capacity to take risks without the fear of reprisal.
We also encourage our clients to engage in our processes and make them their own. One of the foundational concepts of appropriate justice and dispute resolution is that of self determination. It is our role to provide comprehensive information and access to independent advice within a framework that facilitates parties making their own cogent decisions on even the most challenging issues.
YOU HAVE PROBLEMS. WE HAVE SOLUTIONS.
