People give us their toughest problems.
Overlap helps organizations make headway on the problems that matter most to them.
Every day, we co-design solutions with the people who know their problems best.
The Better is Possible Project is an Overlap Associates initiative that aims to remind us what it means to be human.
Through the power of storytelling, our goal is to share with you stories of everyday people who have overcome life's setbacks and are actively trying to bring about change in their communities.
Facing tough problems, together.
Overlap has worked in many sectors—regionally, nationally and internationally. But, the important story is that our clients are happy with us. Many say, “we don’t know where we end and you begin.” There is a reason for that. We believe in positive change and when we work with you we sign up for, and commit to, your better. We are just as interested in making your results better as you are.

Getting to better.
Getting to Better is Overlap’s blog for stories, insights, and industry trends surrounding social innovation, capacity building, design thinking, and human-centred design.
“Overlappers place the highest value on a process that is driven by the needs and insights of the end user. This uncompromising focus on the person receiving service fuels the passion that staff and decision makers have for making a difference in the lives of people.”
— Fred Wagner, Executive Director, Canadian Mental Health Association WW
