Since 1994, the Government Relations Institute of Canada (GRIC) has been the national, non-profit association, representing both government relations and public affairs professionals from all sectors. GRIC is widely recognized by governments and other stakeholders as the authoritative voice for the government relations and public affairs community in Canada and is dedicated to advancing the interests of our profession and to working to maintain the highest ethical standards.

Membership includes government and public affairs professionals operating at the national, federal, provincial, territorial and municipal levels, representing a wide-range of sectors. GRIC’s membership spans Canada’s leading corporations, trade associations, charities, NGOs, universities, and consulting and legal firms.

To strengthen the practice and conduct of government relations in Canada, GRIC’s Code of Professional Conduct defines a standard of professional conduct for members of the Government Relations Institute of Canada and applies to all members of the Institute.
