Our strength, we personalize our services

Cogniges has the expertise and methods to research, qualify, analyze and deliver quality information in areas such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals, technology, the legal world and the competitive business world.

We reject the use of recipes to favour suitable approaches. The personalization of information searches is an essential condition for obtaining a clear vision of a sector of activity, for validating a specific expertise or documenting a situation in order to build a diligent opinion, because today information research is a complex exercise in a world where information accumulates by tens of thousands of gigabytes per second.

Cogniges inc. was founded in 2004 by Céline Bélanger, BA, MBSI. Céline uses an approach to identify your information needs, your objectives and your expectations in order to deliver personalized results, adapted to your reality and in the format of your choice.

Thanks to her 20 years of experience, Céline offers you an information search and monitoring service adapted to your reality.

"Cogniges" is a contraction between the words cognition (ability to know) and management ("gestion" in French).

We use tools and our expertise to find what Google does not show.

Case examples


An organization working in the health and technology sector produces a newsletter in order to position itself as a leader in its field. It also wishes to inform subscribers (internal and external to the organization) on specific subjects related to the organization's strategic goals.

Each month, we search through more than 150 sources (websites of national and international organizations, databases and health publisher websites) for the most relevant documents to feed the newsletter.


A pharmaceutical company needs Canadian data on a drug X and medical condition Y (epidemiology, demographics, statistics on treatment options, side effects of the drug, etc.) in order to provide the Canadian government officials with a comprehensive risk reduction plan.

We developed the necessary search strategies to find the relevant articles in the Pubmed database and we searched Health and Statistics Canada and other Canadian organization's websites. This allowed us to find relevant articles and reports that facilitated the writing of the risk reduction plan.


We helped an independent management consultant working on assignment with a Canadian university to review the mission of a service unit of this organization obtain primary information to feed its analysis and recommendations.

We compared the websites of similar service units from several same size Canadian universities, we conducted telephone interviews with targeted questions with the leaders of these units and we did two surveys (one targeting faculty members and one targeting students using this University resource).


A law firm needs a documented research in Canadian newspapers to prepare an affidavit in an intellectual property case.

We have searched several databases such as Eureka and across the web. For each relevant article spotted on the web, we also analyzed the traffic to the site using tools such as Alexa. We drafted the affidavit attesting to all the steps taken.

A manufacturing company producing a consumer product in a highly regulated sector must monitor legal current affairs, Canadian laws and regulations, and official gazettes and publications.

We have developed a weekly watch process to monitor all relevant publications and websites. Our preferred monitoring tool was an Excel file, separated by jurisdictions, because Excel was known to all team members.
