Connect your organization’s values with the needs and priorities of government, stakeholders and public.
Navigating government, shaping public policy and communicating effectively with decision makers and stakeholders at all levels of government takes understanding and knowledge. And, without a doubt, some support. Canadian Strategy Group offers clients decades of experience in both the political realm of government and private sector, designing and implementing the strategies that precede an organization’s best, and most influential work.
Clients look to us to help them get the conversation right. Our support comes from a deep understanding of how to impact public policy across a range of services in government relations, stakeholder engagement, municipal affairs, and to access our in-house strategic council. We approach issues with a lens from across the political spectrum and with a unique geographical footprint stretching from Western Canada to Ottawa and Washington D.C. We understand the evolution of public policy, recognize how to leverage bureaucratic and social license opportunities and how to maximize advocacy to get you and your organization where you need to go.
We recognize that government relations strategies are but one facet of your business plan and operational framework. We will work with your organization and other professionals to ensure all strategies support your long-term and short-term business objectives. More importantly, we will structure approaches that are implemented without disruption or diversion from your daily corporate focus.
Stakeholder engagement comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. It includes everything from public consultation, to community conversations. It engages those who are invested in outcomes and considers the public an active partner in influential decisions impacting the community. Efficient consultation creates harmony and balance in situations that can be emotionally charged, controversial and complex. It acts as a metaphorical stamp of approval and ultimately strengthens each project’s foundation.Learn More About Stakeholder Engagement
