You can rise above the noise.
We can help.

Lakeview Public Relations is a new communication agency, bringing 40 years of communication and design experience under one roof.

We bring this experience to offer you imaginative and thoughtful communication and design solutions to help you to be successful. 

Everything we do is goal-based, meaning we start by identifying and then focusing on the communication that supports your goals so you can reach them. Nothing is ever done for the sake of doing it, but with your outcome in mind. It's that kind of thinking that creates the right strategy to develop or hone your position, to resonate with your audience, to get the results you're looking for.

Over the years, we’ve gained tremendous experience working as consultants or employees with a wide range of businesses and organizations, from Crown corporations and all levels of government, to nonprofits, businesses both large and small, professional associations and in education.

Some of the organizations with whom we have worked include: the City of Kingston, the RCMP, Health Canada, the Province of Nova Scotia, York Region, the Canada Games, Microsoft, Bell Canada, Canada Post, Ernst and Young, and Vauxhall, the Frontenac Heritage Foundation, among many others.

We'd love to put our experience to work for you.

We ascribe to a code of ethics through our membership in the International Association of Business Communicators. We are also members of the International Association of Public Participation.
