The Jefferson Center for New Democratic Processes is the originator of the Citizens Jury , which creates opportunities for everyday citizens to provide high-quality input on a variety of public policy issues.
MASS LBP's work goes far beyond polling or focus groups. From conception to execution to evaluation, MASS LBP designs and delivers highly innovative engagement strategies that increase public understanding, legitimacy and support for complex decisions and policy choices.
Inspired by Canada's first Citizens' Assemblies, MASS LBP was founded in 2007 by Peter MacLeod and George Gosbee to extend this model and reinvent public consultation. MASS LBP is based in Toronto with staff in Vancouver, Ottawa and London, UK.
