Our approach is to understand where clients’ interests connect with the work of government, how they fit within the history and future direction of related files, and the stakeholder engagement required to see them through. In this way, we provide strategies for achieving government relations objectives that are as informed as they are effective.
Whether it’s on Parliament Hill, Queen’s Park or Toronto City Hall, our Senior Partners and Consultants work regularly with members of the public service and elected and non-elected officials from all political parties. We know how the parliamentary process works and provide actionable advice to clients at all points in their government relations strategy to help them navigate the system.
We begin every new client relationship with an intensive study of their industry, issues and objectives to ensure we provide relevant, timely information and advice concerning parliamentary activities impacting our clients’ areas of interest. This also enables us to act as extensions of our clients’ interests and move their issues forward without day-to-day guidance, when required.

We build teams with the right expertise to manage your unique issues and requirements and to act as extensions of your interests, from the development of the government relations program through to implementation.
