Proof Strategies adds former Alberta Minister to Government Relations practice
OTTAWA, March 31, 2022 –Proof Strategies is expanding its government relations team with the addition of Sandra Jansen, a former cabinet minister with a strong political network in Alberta, Ontario and beyond.
Sandra Jansen joins as a Vice President on the Government Relations team and follows a string of client additions for the GR team. Sandra is the former Minister of Infrastructure for the Province of Alberta, and also served as Associate Minister of Family and Community Safety Alberta and Member of the Legislative Assembly for Calgary North West for more than seven years.
Now based in Toronto, Sandra brings her extensive government, regulatory and board expertise along with her 10 years as a national host and interviewer for CTV News. Prior to entering elected politics, Sandra was the Senior Communications Manager to the Premier of Alberta.
