The Science of Communication

PR Associates is the only full-service science communication consultancy in Canada. We help science producing-enterprises such as private sector companies, government departments, universities, hospitals and affiliate research institutes, professional associations, and independent think tanks communicate complex scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical (STEM) concepts in ways that are easy to understand for non-scientists.

Through our Science of Communication ™ training, strategic communication planning and execution, we help STEM-minded professionals and organizations be better understood, build favourable reputations and achieve their success.

It’s not magic, it's science

PR Associates uses a unique approach to communicating complex scientific information. We call it the Science of Communication™. This simple but effective method makes it easier for non-technical people to understand the STEM concepts behind complex ideas, projects and organizations.

We provide your team the tools to meaningfully connect with: investors, media, Indigenous communities, federal, provincial, territorial, municipal and international governments, and the general public.
