Canadian Council of Public Relations Firms launches its Blog

Canadian Council of Public Relations Firms

Are you interested in knowing more about the public relations consulting industry in Canada? Then you will want to subscribe to a new blog launched by the recently formed Canadian Council of Public Relations Firms (CCPRF).

The CCPRF is the organization that represents public relations consulting firms in Canada. Its membership is restricted to the principals of the firms. So, it will be worth watching this blog to see if it develops as a place where the senior officers of its members talk about important issues facing the industry.

Disclosure: If you’ve wondered why I haven’t posted on ProPR for the past several days and if you noticed the name on the first post on the CCPRF blog …. Thornley Fallis is a member of the CCPRF and I spent my spare time the last few days finalizing the CCPRF blog and getting it up and operating. So, I’m hopeful that this new blog will in fact flourish.

  • Hi Joe,

    This is good to see. I’ve argued elsewhere (in meetings with members of the council and on my blog) that the PR agencies needsto make a concerted effort to promote the value that PR can bring to a business – essentially PR agencies need to market themselves better. Today Ed Lee posted a good example of why.

    Best of luck to you and the council.

  • Joe, great initiative. I tried to leave a comment on the site but it didn’t let me do it — must have realized on not an agency guy!

    Anyway, here’s the comment: “A welcome addition to the Canadian PR firmament. I’m looking forward to polishing my understanding of the issues on the agency side of public relations. Consider me subscribed!”

  • quick second note, Joe, while this awaits moderation: end of paragraph 1 should read “must have realized I’m not an agency guy.”
