Client Spotlights

Bentall Kennedy

We began our work with Bentall Kennedy on the redevelopment of the Canada Post Building, an entire city block in downtown Vancouver. The complex project took on many interactions, as Bentall Kennedy worked to maintain the heritage values of this downtown landmark building.


Catalyst

Catalyst is a BC-based not-for-profit real estate developer that builds vibrant, affordable and inspiring rental homes and places for people to live and work in. Catalyst works with non-profits to unlock the value of their real estate assets, and reinvest that value back into our communities. Boldt is proud to be working with them to share their model and how it can help address BC’s ongoing rental housing shortage


City of Vancouver

Boldt worked with the City of Vancouver’s Drug Policy Program in 2003 and 2004 to support effective and ongoing communications around the Four Pillars Drugs Strategy. Working with Corporate Communications, we helped the program develop a microsite for newsletters and updates, and worked with Vancouver Coastal Health, the Vancouver Agreement and other stakeholders on collaborative communications and media relations projects, including the opening of the supervised injection site in Vancouver (now called Insite). Boldt also developed a strategic communications plan for the Social Planning department in 2007. Lesli was an in-house consultant with the City of Vancouver between 2008 and 2010 to manage the City's 2010 Winter Games-related communications.


Boffo Properties

We worked with Boffo Properties and their project partner, The Kettle Society, to redevelop their side-by-side properties at Commercial and Venables. Our proposal wasn’t successful at City Council, but we built community support for more a inclusive community, and greater acceptance of people living with mental health challenges in our city.


PHS Community Services Society

Boldt works with a remarkable group of people at PHS committed to providing homes, health care and community services for vulnerable people, including those living with mental health and addiction issues. In the midst of the opioid overdose crisis, the PHS team is changing lives every day - with love, compassion, dedication and generosity of spirit. We’re proud to work with them.


Reconciliation Canada

We worked with the team at Reconciliation Canada to communicate and promote the 2013 Walk for Reconciliation - the first of its kind in Canada - and the events in and around it. Tens of thousands of British Columbians and First Nations people walked side by side to help find a new way forward, together.

UNYA’s vision for the Native Youth Centre is for an expanded 50,000 square foot Indigenous youth hub, with a range of services that will include a health and wellness centre, up to 220 units of affordable rental housing, and programming space to meet a range of youth needs. The NYC will deliver accessible, culturally responsive and prevention focused programs that support the well-being of Indigenous children, youth and families.


Vancity Credit Union

Boldt has worked with Vancity Credit Union on a range of internal and external communications projects since 2001, including everything from web writing to annual report project management, marketing copy writing, executive speechwriting, content for the Vancity Careers recruitment microsite, and strategic advice on media relations, and employee communications and awareness projects. Vancity is like Lesli’s Cheers – everyone knows her name, and they’re always glad she came. We love being part of the Vancity family.


Vancouver Farmers Markets

Boldt works with Vancouver Farmers Markets to help them achieve their strategic goals and communicate their incredible impact on our communities and local food economy. And…we love their heirloom tomatoes, which is why we’re also a VFM market member! Join here: http://eatlocal.org/membership/.
