Our Team

Your Guiding Star in Canadian Government Relations and Public Affairs.


We are a team of seasoned Liberals and Conservatives who know the ins and outs of how things get done in Canadian politics and government. We are your dedicated public affairs partners.


Why Choose Us

We know the landscape, we know the people, and we have the determination to get it done.


Ottawa is full of government relations shops that run on reputation more than on results. We will never put tactics before strategy. We believe in the power of traditional advocacy fuelled by data and insights, paired with the most modern tools and approaches designed to create awareness, engagement and action. That’s how we get it done.



Our team is composed of former political staffers, public policy experts, and seasoned consultants who have been in senior decision-making roles inside government. We know how today’s decision makers think and what matters most to them. Simply put, we know how to get it done.


Drawing on our in-depth understanding of the political landscape and public policy, we offer tailored strategies to engage with government stakeholders. Our role is to equip our clients on how to best communicate their story and their needs, open doors, and ensure your perspectives contribute to informed policymaking.


We’ve partnered with spark*insights, a rising leader providing fast, affordable and quality public opinion research to formulate strategies that resonate with government and political audiences, and drive results.
