About us


The company was born in the winter of 2013, from the merger of Ellipsos, Optim Ressources and Ethisolutions, three of the very first sustainable development consulting firms in Quebec. Recognized for their expertise in supporting organizations and their contribution to the dissemination of sustainable development principles, our firms had been working together for several years. With the cumulative experience of its founders, Ellio has over 15 years' experience in the field of sustainable development. 
Motivated by a deep-rooted human, environmental and social conviction, we believe that each and every one of us has the energy, the power, not to say today the duty, to be a positive agent of change. This power is within each and every one of us, whether we are a citizen, an employee, an entrepreneur, the CEO of a multinational corporation or a member of a board of directors.
Because when it comes down to it, if there's one thing we all have in common, it's the future of our society.

Our corporate culture

Corporate culture icon

A horizontal structure,
linked by a common project

To unleash individual and collective energies, we have chosen to experiment with a shared governance model which, over time, will evolve into a hybrid model better suited to our needs and desires: shared governance.
Nurtured by the pleasure of collaboration, mutual trust and a sense of responsibility, our teams are now autonomous in the way they manage the files entrusted to them, whether they choose to exercise their acquired skills or to respond to new career aspirations.
After two years of learning, trial and error (!), we are now convinced that this approach nurtures collective goodwill, unleashes creativity and provokes the constructive exchanges that a learning organization like ours needs.
