With a dozen public affairs practitioners located at the heart of Canadian politics, our roster of former elected officials, senior political staff and public service veterans take an integrated approach to advocacy, engagement, research, strategic counsel, stakeholder mapping, and government relations.

We’ve previously worked in all levels of government, so we know how to demystify government systems and processes for our clients. We design innovative strategies, we build trusted partnerships, and we get things done.

We are a startup within a global communications firm. Our nimble advisory team works fluidly across every key market, while leveraging the trusted expertise of Edelman's 6,000 colleagues worldwide. We are the new guard—entrepreneurs with fresh insights and tailored strategies to achieve your goals.

We start with strategy guided by our best-in-class public affairs and government relations teams. Then we integrate Edelman’s unparalleled suite of services—public relations, communications, marketing and digital advocacy and more—to earn the trust of your stakeholders. All in one seamless package.
