Argyle Communications, one of Canada’s largest independent public relations firms, today announced the opening of a federal public affairs practice in Ottawa. Argyle has done extensive work in government communications at all levels – federal, provincial, municipal and international – and is well-placed to deepen its activities in the nation’s capital.
The award-winning firm, headquartered in Toronto since 1979, is led by CEO Daniel Tisch, a former senior political advisor and public servant in various departments, and past chair of the public relations industry’s global professional body. Tisch and the Argyle team are well-known for communications, advocacy, crisis management and stakeholder consultations on some of the most complex issues in the public sector. These include food and drug safety, environmental issues, health care, transportation, infrastructure, urban affairs, agriculture, R&D, financial services, international trade, child welfare and procurement.
“Argyle’s new Ottawa practice allows us to respond to the public affairs needs of our clients at the federal level,” Tisch says. “For any organization that touches – or is touched by – public policy, legislation or regulation, dialogue with the public sector is essential. Argyle has the expertise and understanding to help organizations navigate the complex and challenging federal scene.”
The Argyle team in Ottawa is led by Vice President of Public Affairs Chris Hilton, a veteran political advisor and experienced communications consultant, along with employees with extensive experience working with government.
“At Argyle, we offer more than just an understanding of government,” said Hilton. “We can help clients work with government to build valuable relationships, mutual understanding and sustained success for their organizations — and for society.”
