Boutique strategy consulting firms in Toronto

Hi there,

I'm submitting consulting application firms at the minute to Toronto firms. So far I've only applied to bigger firms because I can't find much about the boutique consulting landscape around here. Is there one? Any companies that are known for being particularly awesome/good to work for? I'm looking for strategy firms. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I can't help with specific firms, but here are a few other ideas you might try to get some names

  • Reach out to the consulting club leaders at universities in Toronto. This isn't hard to do with many U.S. schools.
  • Call the career services offices at those schools and ask which consulting firms recruit there, or look on their website.
  • Do an advanced search on LinkedIn and see what firms show up or people you might be connected to through someone else who could answer that question. Join any relevant LinkedIn Consulting groups and ask the question to the group
  • Ask for help from your career services office. Can't they point you at least toward a book that lists consulting firms by geographic area?
