We're Here to Help You Stay On Top of What's Topical
We build tools that help you navigate what’s new and important from local government organizations.
In the Search for What's Relevant,
A Lot Gets Lost or Overlooked
You need to cut through the noise to get ahead.
There is a lot of information out there about new or emerging initiatives from local government organizations. The problem is, the majority of this information is disorganized. It’s hard to sift through these reams of updates, agendas, announcements and session recordings for kernels of valuable insight, and a lot can slip through the cracks.
Our team specializes in business intelligence solutions. So when we realized how much critical information was being released from local government organizations across North America every day, only to get lost in the shuffle of bad UI, we knew there had to be a better way.
We Have a Few Tricks Up Our Sleeves

Ontopical uses the innovative capabilities of machine learning to help you build new revenue streams, increase efficiency and stay on-top of current and future government developments.
We created Ontopical because we wanted to enable businesses like yours to access important public information quickly and easily.

These better business decisions become successful business outcomes and stronger more resilient communities.
