David Pratt & Associates (DPA), is expanding our client base from companies interested exclusively in the defence and security sectors to include a more diverse clientele across a range of industries.

At DPA, we bring together a wealth of talent, experience and deep knowledge drawn from the senior levels of government, the armed forces and politics. We pride ourselves on the innovative thinking and creative solutions that define our engagement with clients. We are agile, adept and committed to our client’s success. Decades of experience have positioned us well to provide pragmatic and trustworthy advice to clients.

In addition, the creative resources we have at our disposal add élan, elegance and sophistication to communications and marketing messaging. We are relationship managers. We manage our own relationships with senior government officials and assist our clients in developing and cultivating similar relationships.

In essence, we bring people who need solutions to public policy issues or procurement challenges together with people who can provide those solutions. We create value for our clients by accelerating the process of relationship building while at the same time managing and reducing company risk when engaging with political and government authorities.

TOP 100


Every year, the publication The Hill Times produces a list of “The Top 100 Lobbyists” in Canada.  For the third year in a row, David Pratt & Associates, has made that top 100 list. We are very proud to be in the Top 100 of the almost 5,500 registered federal lobbyists.

“I believe we made this list because we are committed to our clients – their success is our success – and because we uphold the highest levels of professionalism as a consultant lobbyist firm.”

– The Honourable David Pratt, P.C., KStG



We specialize in Indigenous and First Nation’s economic development and strategic partnerships.
