Government Relations

When government decisions impact your business, active representation at all levels is critical to success. How and when you communicate with the government, especially in times of crisis, can dramatically affect your bottom line.

Our veteran team of public policy experts have decades of experience translating business to government, and government to business. We apply our deep industry knowledge to build government relations strategies that leverage meaningful relationships with government decision-makers and policy influencers.

Our government relations team is located in Ottawa and Toronto, with affiliates across the country.

At Proof Strategies, we weave together strength and experience in government policy making, public relations, issues management, research, digital media, advertising and more. It’s how we deliver the most impact on our clients’ business objectives.
