Informed. Strategic. Insightful.

Bridging the gap between the private and public sectors.

Our Essence



We are a boutique public affairs firm specializing in government relations and communications.



Our size allows us to react quickly. We identify your opportunities, and help seize them.

We support you to capitalize on opportunities and mitigate threats.



We are comprised entirely of seasoned experts, and as one of Canada’s oldest government relations firms, we have advised on some of the largest public-private partnerships and policy decisions.



Often starting as short-term projects, many of our clients have partnered with us for decades.

Our Approach

We believe that at its best, government relations should bridge the gap between the private and public sectors. We help create understanding on both sides, ultimately leading to better public policy.

We understand that every client and every issue is unique. We present thoughtful, customized solutions, not cookie-cutter approaches or pre-packaged plans.

Our Services


Government Relations

Our number one activity is government relations. We have a proven track record of working with business and government to achieve results – results that work for both the public and private sectors.


Public Relations

We develop campaigns to change public attitudes; create and direct communications programs to manage difficult issues; and craft strategies to shift the media environment.


 Grassroots Mobilization

We design and manage campaigns to activate grassroots networks, either to raise issue awareness, or to create public pressure for policy change.


Policy Research and Development

We conduct extensive background research and develop all types of policy documents. These include major submissions and sector reviews as well as individual issue-based analyses.

Association Management

Association Management

When volunteer associations find it difficult to grow or meet the needs of their members, we offer professional, experienced management, including managing all communications, membership renewals, and back-office support.
