Advocacy – Providing advocacy on public policy matters The following are some recent Advocacy work that CSI has completed:

  • CSI was retained by the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo and the Regional Issues Working Group (the precursor to the Oil Sands Developers Group) to help develop a Wood Buffalo Business Case. This 2005 report became a catalyst for government spending in excess of $1.5 billion in public infrastructure.


  • CSI provided strategic guidance to a junior oil sands company, Deep Well Oil & Gas, Inc., committed to sustainable development of its bitumen deposits. CSI raised more than $18 million in capital for the firm, helped restructure its administration, advised in negotiations with domestic and international firms and investors. Satya was recently elected to the Board of Directors of this listed company.

We do offer Advocacy as a pro bono service depending on the situation of the individual.
