CauseComms

Our 
Values

Building infrastructure for today’s networked movements.

Founded in 2014, CauseComms is a national and bicultural digital agency with offices in Montreal and Vancouver. Our mission is to provide professional digital campaigns and content to good causes at prices they can afford. We work exclusively for the common good, we pick our clients and we have a demonstrated skill set ideally suited to a rapidly-evolving digital world.

Our Team

We all have one thing in common: when we joined CauseComms we chose to make less money doing more important work. Between us we’ve co-founded a publicly-traded social media agency and a national media outlet. We’ve directed, filmed and produced television shows and feature films, invented the leading tool for measuring social engagement and run digital communications departments at every level of politics. We write for outlets like The Guardian and Mashable and we appear as analysts on numerous television and radio stations.

In short, we’re experts in our field. We could be making a lot of money doing corporate work, but instead we make a little doing work that matters a lot.

We are CauseComms: communications for the common good.
