Hill & Knowlton Canada specializes in a range of offerings to help you drive growth, mitigate risk and build reputation.
Corporate Communications & Advisory
Our work is focused on building and maintaining corporate reputation. In a world where reputation is a measurable business asset, effective communications play a critical role in creating long term sustainable value. Demonstrating your values and corporate purpose is increasingly important for all audiences from investors, customers and employees to consumers, partners and more. They want to know why you do what you do. We work alongside our clients to build profile through thought leadership and earned media, communicate their impact on areas of ESG, and build trust with the audiences that matter most to them.
Public Affairs & Advocacy
Gone are the days where the public are simple observers of news and political commentary. The population has increasingly has the ability to stop developments, derail a business, demand changes to taxes and supply chains, or change policy and regulations that impact your business. If you are not active in those discussions, the government does not hear your voice. H&K takes an activist approach to public affairs and advocacy in Canada. Our professionals come from inside governments and political offices. We understand how to communicate in a way that motivates action, and we are focused on helping the government and population work in your favour. H&K boasts a team of over 50 public affairs professionals in our practice across our 8 Canadian offices, including two French language first offices in Québec City and Montréal. Our support for clients ranges from the largest Canadian corporations who need professional strategists to monitor emerging issues, to new and disruptive economy participants challenging established norms and laws, to large trade associations working on future policies that will have a direct impact on our lives. Our work extends to a robust procurement offering focused on technology, healthcare, transportation and defense equipment, such as vessels for our coastguards and aircrafts for our military.
We create conversations, content, and campaigns that pique curiosity, drive consumer desire and make brands famous. With a deep focus on understanding our clients' audiences and what moves them, we build ideas that earn attention from consumers across all channels — and ultimately tell your brand's story in a way to drive and achieve real business value.
