Helping project developers secure community and government support
Project Advocacy Inc. is Canada's only public affairs firm that specializes in supporting project developers facing community opposition and government challenges.
Project Advocacy Inc. takes an innovative approach. It is based on citizen advocacy. We use grassroots strategies combined with government and stakeholder relations to earn and maintain the social licence required for a project's success.
We help developers find, organize and give voice to otherwise silent supporters of your project in host communities.
Our sophisticated campaign strategies help identify local citizens supportive of your proposal and help organize them into an effective political force. They sign petitions. They show up at public hearings, and they act as local advocates for your project.
This approach, paired with government and stakeholder relations, has proven key to getting large developments approved in Canada's increasingly challenging licensing and regulatory environment.
Whether it is an energy and infrastructure project, a quarry, or a commercial real estate proposal, Project Advocacy Inc. will build an effective advocacy program that will counter NIMBY opposition and drive support for your project among local citizens, elected leaders, government officials and the media.
