Earnscliffe Strategy Group

About Earnscliffe

Canada's Most Trusted Strategic Consultants

Earnscliffe is a name as old as Canada. It was the residence where Sir John A. Macdonald brought the thought leaders of his day to build a country. For us Earnscliffe is not just a name, it is a legacy – a place where today's leaders can find discreet, salient advice to maximize opportunity, minimize risk and achieve their most important goals.

The forces that impact public policy are more diverse than ever. Earnscliffe understands these forces and how they operate from the inside because we've been there. Our professionals are trusted advisors to the top levels of government, business, politics and the media. And we design your strategy with an understanding of the big picture and a commitment to the long view, the place where your organization's success really lies.
