Envigour specializes in strategic policy development. We have extensive experience in development of policy, strategies, and plans. We also can advise on how to ensure successful implementation. We specialize in energy policy, but can bring our experience to many fields.
Development can bring uncertainty and a risk the public may lose confidence that the development will be managed to a positive outcome. Envigour believes public confidence can grow when development is done with respect, open dialogue and is knowledge based. We can help.
Good policy involves managing positive and sustainable economic development. Envigour will help build connections for businesses in Canada and beyond, especially in the emerging Marine Renewable Energy and Efficiency sectors.
The Envigour Team is growing. We started in 2016 with Principal Consultant, Bruce Cameron. Bruce has more than 40 years’ experience in public policy critique, analysis, and development. Close to 20 years of that experience was with the Nova Scotia Government in the Departments of Finance and Energy. Based on significant experience in public consultation, policy, and strategy development, Bruce can advise on policy options, alternatives and implementation strategies for public and private sector interests.

He has developed policy leadership in the areas of electricity, renewable energy – particularly in the area of in-stream tidal energy – energy regulatory development – particularly in offshore oil and gas as well as marine renewables. In the development of strategic energy policies for – Nova Scotia, he also has extensive experience in stakeholder and public engagement. He has an MBA from Dalhousie University (1985) and an undergraduate degree from Carleton University in the arts and social sciences (BA 1973) BJ Hon. (1974).
