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

 

​Getting access to the right people can be difficult. Our team has established non-partisan relationships with the Ottawa city council, the Ontario government, and the federal government. 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 about relationships with elected officials, government ministerial staff, and other policymakers who may impact 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 only solve some issues, 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, so ensuring your ask is targeted in coverage and directed to the appropriate person is vital.
