The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.

RESTCo Structure and Governance

Originally, we had planned to make our organization a non-profit corporation. Unfortunately, we found that the existing rules for establishing and operating non-profits in Canada to be too restrictive and cumbersome, as we expect our niche to be rather dynamic in the near future. In order to have maximum flexibility, after studying several options, we determined that a for-profit corporate structure would be the best for our purposes. However, this does not mean that we have to make a profit (as has been amply demonstrated by many major multi-national corporations in 2008 and 2009).

While RESTCo is nominally a for-profit corporation with a Board of Directors, shareholders and company officers, we operate by consensus, and with respect for all our principals, collaborators, associates and clients.

We measure our success by the benefits we generate for our clients and our personal satisfaction and pride in what we accomplish, not by financial profit. We expect to compensate people doing work for us fairly, while funds will also be used to further research in areas relevant to our fields of operation.
