Driven by social impact

An agency of deeply passionate professionals, we exclusively serve non-profit organizations and public agencies.

We provide strategic communications, public and stakeholder engagement, and organizational design and leadership solutions for non-profit and public sector organizations in:

  • consumer and public protection
  • poverty reduction and affordable housing
  • sustainability
  • public health

In these uncertain times, many organizations are facing unprecedented challenges. From COVID-19 to an increasingly divided civil society, staffing constraints, and funding challenges, an uncertain and challenging future has become the new reality.

With associates who bring extensive experience working in the sectors we serve, MDR is uniquely qualified and positioned to address complex issues and drive change to influence stakeholders.

Unique team. Winning approaches.

To us, the realities of today drive our passion. Our professional backgrounds, academic achievements, and personal philosophies are inextricably bound to our corporate values.

In an increasingly intense world where breaking news never stops, it’s important to have a fully engaged team that remains in tune with trends and influencers, and legitimately cares about the world in which they live.

Fortunate to have worked on numerous projects ranging from local stakeholder engagement initiatives for community agencies to creating strategic plans for regulatory bodies and designing complex global communications and marketing strategies for the United Nations to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals; leaders across Canada and around the world are reaching out to work with MDR.

Why? Because when you combine effective strategies to achieve success with a highly experienced team and an unconditional resolve to make the world a better place, you’ve got that perfect foundation to create meaningful change.
