Government Relations (GR) and Public Affairs Is About Relationships​


​Getting access to the right people can be difficult, but not for our small business and not-for-profit clients. Our team has established non-partisan relationships with key officials throughout the City of Ottawa, the province of Ontario and federally. Ottawa Consultants have spent the past three years building and developing relationships with all elected officials.  We have established their trust and formed long-lasting relationships. As a result, we have direct access to elected officials for our clients and can quickly navigate all government levels, putting you in the best position for success.

Government relations (GR) and public affairs are all about relationships with elected officials, government ministerial staff, and other policymakers who may have an impact on their organization.


Defining Your Ask Before You Lobby The Government


When people hear government relations, the first thing that usually comes to mind is legislation. However, it is essential to note that legislation can't solve every issue, just like elected officials don't have jurisdiction over everything that happens in our city, province or country. We vote for elected officials to represent our interests, but the legislature's resources and power are limited in scope. Solving an issue or problem through the government can be challenging, which is why it is vital to make sure your ask is targeted in scope and directed to the appropriate person.

Why Should My Organization Lobby the Government?


Ottawa Consultants can help you bring change to your sector in a professional, well-respected manner. Many businesses hire professionals at Ottawa Consultants who have lobbying experience to engage in their lobbying activities on their behalf.  During the pandemic, some of the experts at Ottawa Consultants became the voice and face of small-business owners who had no lobbying experience and help bring policy changes forward when they were needed the most. Depending on your sector, Ottawa Consultants can have your sector concerns heard and bring change.
