Rosemont Consultants Ltd is a specialized consulting service that works with Indigenous people to identify opportunities for growth and change. As an Indigenous owned entity, we are deeply connected to our culture and we understand the importance of creating a better future for our people.
Our founders, Rosanne and Monty Verhulst, share a common perspective on working together to help Indigenous people achieve independence. With independence, comes a newfound hope for rebuilding a community that has the potential to create jobs, businesses and education programs for the people living within it.
As parents of five children, Rosanne and Monty understand the importance of family and how community plays a significant role in the lives of our children. The vision behind Rosemont Consultants is to create endless opportunities for Indigenous communities and the children that are raised by them.
