Strategic Communication

In a world where information and news move at the speed of light through a multitude of online social and traditional media platforms, reputation management is foundational to an organization’s success. That is why it is critical to have a long-term and thoughtful strategy and plan to build and maintain a positive brand. Loyalist works with clients to create and implement strategies to do so – from developing a company’s core narrative to preparing its spokespeople for interacting with the media.

Government Relations

Loyalist helps clients navigate the complex world of government to not only solve problems, but to find opportunities. Our experienced consultants have served in high-level positions in governments across Canada and understand how to align the interest of our clients with the priorities of governments. Our approach is one that is focused and solutions-oriented.

Issue Management

A single crisis can undermine an organization’s reputation that may have taken many years and an enormous effort to build. Though crises can cause organizational indecision, it is critical to respond to issues directly, with speed, and with a well-thought-out plan. We work with clients to move quickly and decisively to mitigate damage and restore public trust.

Polling & Research

Through qualitative and quantitative research methods, Loyalist provides its clients the critical market intelligence needed to make evidence-based decisions. Whether it’s a question on public acceptance of a new product or initiative, tracking views over time, or measuring concerns about a government policy that may affect your business, we start by knowing your audience.
