Purpose. Driven.

LEADERSHIP

We successfully position clients to have a greater impact

on stakeholders, the public, and the environment.

 

A PEOPLE-FIRST AGENCY

MDR Public Affairs is a social enterprise that provides strategic communications services for organizations that improve access to education and those committed to building safer, healthier, and greener communities.
 

Typically, our clients are organizations that:

  • oversee professional standards to improve public safety;

  • address labour market challenges through future skills development;

  • make meaningful contributions to environmental sustainability; and

  • develop or enhance workplace Equity, Diversity, Decolonization, and Inclusion frameworks.

At a time when organizations are facing unprecedented challenges, MDR Public Affairs is uniquely qualified and positioned to address complex issues and drive change to influence stakeholders.

Our associates are one of a kind.  Their professional backgrounds, academic achievements, and personal philosophies are inextricably bound to our values.  In an increasingly intense world where breaking news never stops, it's important to have a team that is fully engaged, remains in-tune with trends and influencers, and legitimately cares about the world in which they live. 

 

Our work isn't merely transactional, but deeply personal.  We fully recognize today's changing socio-political climates and commit ourselves to deliver solutions that are current, highly impactful, and relevant.
