Who we are

Ponder is a Vancouver based Community Research company. We utilize tools from both market research and community facilitation to create a unique blend of community research. Over the past two years we have worked with local funders, non-profits and

co-operatives to gain insights into important social issues and trends. We’ve worked with local partners to create reports with big impact, including The Sharing Project and a report with the BC Co-operative Association called Opportunities for Food Hub Development in BC.

Being able to communicate and engage effectively with communities and community groups takes more than just good research methods; it involves experience in the community. Our team has years of experience with non-profit and cooperative organizations.
