In November 2014, Campbell Strategies launched a pro bono campaign for Canada’s remaining thalidomide survivors. Although for many a forgotten issue, the campaign publicly raised the plight of Canada’s Thalidomide survivors, achieved a unanimous vote in the House of Commons (in just eight days), and resulted in a $180 million funding package for Canada’s remaining 94 survivors.

How did it all happen?

This panel presents the “inside story” of the campaign – from stem to stern – including the strategy, tools and tactics to build the public case for government action. From direct government outreach to opposition engagement, from creating a broad-based media campaign to focusing coverage on one major news champion, the panel will share their experience and lessons that are applicable for all GR practitioners.

Join Barry Campbell, Chris Holz, Natalie Dash and Ted Griffith of Campbell Strategies as they share the “inside story” of this positive outcome for a survivor group, delivered through government relations expertise and stakeholder collaboration.

Date: June 22, 2015
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:45 PM (lunch will be provided)

A Roundtable Discussion on Housing Affordability: Should government be more or less involved?

Surging home prices. Fast-rising rents. Uncontrollable bidding wars. These all describe Canada’s hot real estate markets and prompted sweeping action by governments to support housing affordability.

First, there was the foreign buyers tax in British Columbia. Then, the Ontario Government announced its?Fair Housing Plan?to make housing more accessible for homebuyers and renters. The Federal Government also introduced measures to increase affordable housing investments across Canada with more announcements expected soon.

Should Government be more or less involved when it comes to affordable housing? What is the role of the private sector? What needs to happen moving forward to ensure Canadians have access and options for affordable housing? Join us as our guest panel explores these questions and others during our Roundtable discussion.

PAAC is pleased to present a breakfast conversation on November 29th with Chris Ballard, Ontario’s Minister of the Environment and Climate Change.? Minister Ballard was appointed to this position on July 31, 2017. With the challenge of implementing a number of key policies, including those under the Climate Change Action Plan and the Ontario Waste-Free Ontario Act. These actions cover a variety of policy areas across government, which adds further complexity to his role.

Key to the implementation of these policies will be communicating, both inside and outside government, the ministry’s objective and overarching motivation of the policies: to mitigate the impacts of climate change to our environment and economy.

Please join us as we discuss these important and timely topics with Minister Ballard, and get his insight as to how he intends to address these complex challenges.

We would like to thank the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) for their generous sponsorship in support of this event.

Women in Public Affairs (WIPA) Relaunch
featuring an evening Q&A with Sevaun Palvetzian, CEO of CivicAction

Join the Public Affairs Association of Canada (PAAC) on September 25th for the exciting relaunch of its Women in Public Affairs (WIPA) series.

The event will feature a thought-provoking Q&A with CivicAction CEO, Sevaun Palvetzian, which will focus on the importance of civic engagement and building leadership experience. We anticipate a fun, engaging, and a fresh take on how we can encourage more women to get involved in the future of their communities, with public affairs being one important way of doing that.

One of Canada’s leading experts on civic engagement, Ms. Palvetzian has been CEO of?CivicAction?since January 2014. Under her leadership, CivicAction has focused on building inclusive cities with the launch of the?CivicAction Leadership Foundation?to change the face of leadership in our region and initiatives focused on?youth unemployment?and?mental health in the workplace?which level the playing field of opportunity and access. Throughout her career, Sevaun has advocated for new voices at the tables of influence including championing the next generation of leaders.


Moderator:
Amanda Galbraith joins Ms. Palvetzian in this discussion in the role of moderator. Ms. Galbraith is a Principal at Navigator, and has more than fifteen years of communications experience having worked in the federal and municipal government, the private sector, on political campaigns, and as a journalist. Prior to joining Navigator, Ms. Galbraith was Director of Communications to the Mayor Toronto.

WHY ATTEND?
As in most industries, women, though well-represented in the lower and middle echelons of the public affairs world, are under-represented in top posts. There are some incredibly successful and inspirational women at the upper echelons of public affairs, but many more who aspire to get there and struggle to achieve it.

For a decade, PAAC has profiled numerous successful women in public affairs in candid conversation with our members and guests.

Building on the success of these events and carefully listening to feedback from its members, PAAC is pleased to relaunch WIPA, with a clear focus on delivering events and discussions that go beyond the regular topics and encourage participation from women at any stage in her career.

With WIPA, PAAC is committed to create an opportunity for women across the industry to come together in an informal setting, to share experiences, ideas and explore how we can work together to build a more diverse and representative public affairs industry.

Power Session #1:

Engaging Your Membership on Government Consultations:

This session seeks to identify best practices and challenges associated with associations engaging members in their advocacy efforts, while also looking at best practices in consulting with government.

Workshop Leader:

Scott Smith – Director, Intellectual Property and innovation Policy, Canadian Chamber of Commerce

Power Session #2:

Going on the Offensive: Tools and tactics to create a Proactive Government Relations Strategy

Grassroots lobbying enables the public to reach legislature and make a difference in the government’s decision-making process. Today, the use of digital platforms such as social media has only enhanced the public’s ability to affect change from the grassroots. Companies and associations across the country are taking advantage of a grassroots lobbying strategy to advocate for different issues and stakeholders. This session seeks to outline how to create a successful and proactive government relations strategy for your firm.

Workshop Leader:

Leslie Noble – Principal – StrategyCorp

Power Session #3:

Spreading yourself Thin: Effectively utilizing resources to manage media, political parties, and the public perception from Coast-to-Coast-to-Coast

Power Session #4:

Harnessing Social Media and Public Relations to Enhance Your Government Relations Efforts

When Marshall McLuhan suggested that “the medium is the message”, he most likely wasn’t referring to tweets and Facebook messages; but his words still ring true today. How we get our messaging across can be just as important as the message itself. As public affairs practitioners develop campaigns and approaches to government and the public, it is important to know the most effective tactics to ensure the message is received.? This session will further explore the role of social media in government relations, and identify key points to consider when putting together your next campaign.

3:30 pm Refreshment Break
3:45 pm Keynote #3:?Fireside Chat with Former Minister Chris Ballard: A Recollection of Time Served in Office and a Forecast of What is to Come

Chris Ballard has been a journalist, a public affairs practitioner, a business owner, a?town councillor, a member of provincial parliament and a cabinet minister. He’s taught?college for new Canadians in Toronto, built businesses in Canada’s far north with?Indigenous communities, and has canoed and hiked more kilometres of remote Canada?than he can remember.

Among his proudest accomplishments is a couple of terms as President of the Public?Affairs Association of Canada, where he escaped with an Honorary Life Membership.?He’s even prouder of being married for 34 years to Audrey, his partner-in-adventure,?and being dad to three great young adults.

Throughout all his jobs, the common thread of success for Chris is one of strong?communication and inter-personal skills. He’s a natural storyteller. Although he’s an?introvert, Chris really likes working with people. He’s excited by the success of those?around him. His management motto? “Hire people smarter than you. Define what?success looks like. Get out of their way.” Chris loves chess. He hates to lose. If he had?one, his personal motto might be “jump off the cliff with the confidence that you can sew?a parachute on the way down.”

As a newly-minted MPP for Newmarket-Aurora, Chris was quickly promoted to Cabinet?and brought in legislation to better protect Ontario renters, launched Ontario’s Basic?Income Pilot Project, oversaw Ontario’s reintegration into the Western Climate Initiative?and the launch of Cap and Trade with Quebec and California. He oversaw the launch of?the multi-billion-dollar Green Ontario Fund, the reduction of sulphur dioxide emissions

(first time since 1974), and the implementation of a trust fund with First Nations to?(finally!) begin cleaning up the mercury-ladened English-Wabigoon River System in?northern Ontario. He was a member of the government’s Treasury Board and a passel?of Legislative Assembly committees.

And now Chris is running for mayor in his hometown of Aurora.

Stay tuned.
