Chanel Grenaway is Principal at Chanel Grenaway & Associates. She has over 15 years of experience in building the organizational capacity of non-profit organizations across Canada.

Currently, as a consultant, she facilitates conversations and conducts participatory research across diverse sectors to enhance project outcomes and their impact. She has a proven ability to analyze trends, synthesize information, evaluate, and provide valuable recommendations to enhance results.
