generativ.ca was founded in 2003 under the name “Groupe Intersol Group: Lise Hebabi Inc.” For the past 16 years, we have worked with clients at all levels of government, as well as national, regional and local non-profits, to help them achieve their goals through effective collaboration, consultation and learning activities.
In 2019, after a long, fruitful, and close partnership with the Intersol Group, we decided it was time to explore new horizons. Although we have “moved out” of the Intersol family home, we remain connected and continue to collaborate with its consultants on a regular basis. We also continue to provide the full range of responsive, high quality services for which we have become known.
