Projects and Publications
Since being established in 1981 by GGI’s founding partners, we have successfully completed over 3500 projects, many of which were conducted for repeat clients!
That’s a lot of projects for a lot of satisfied clients!
Below we present just a few of these projects and, where available, the link to the final deliverable we developed for them.

In 2015, GGI completed an evaluation of Industry Canada’s Industrial and Regional Benefits (IRB) policy. Under the policy, firms that have won defence and security procurements must undertake business activities in Canada equal to the value of the contract. The aim of the policy is to contribute to the continuing viability of Canadian companies’ capabilities in high technology manufacturing and services, and to improve their ability to compete in both domestic and international markets.

In 2014, GGI was hired by UNDP China to conduct some exploratory research to support its work in South-South Cooperation. This study looked at how emerging economies such as India, Brazil and Mexico are evaluating their development cooperation with lower income countries – by questioning and even rejecting the standards long used by donor countries.
For several years now, GGI evaluators have been instrumental in creating and refining methodologies for development effectiveness reviews of multi-lateral organizations. In fact, we have contributed to OEDC-DAC guidance on this work. Here is an example of our review of UNICEF, published in 2013.
Between 2007 and 2009, GGI conducted a series of projects for the Government of Ontario’s Office for Small Business Development that resulted in a toolkit and a series of booklets on the power for e-business targeted at small and medium enterprises in Ontario. We developed the original content for the toolkit and most the booklets and then did a follow-up study (in 2012) to update the ones on legal and privacy issues, internet auctions, integrated back offices, e-exporting, customer relationship management, voice over internet protocol and open source software..
In 2008 and 2009, GGI conducted an evaluation of the Foreign Credential Recognition Program. For that evaluation, GGI conducted interviews, a document and file review, a review of administrative data, a survey of employers, a survey of regulatory bodies, a survey of end-users and occupational case studies.
