Compass Rose culture is small by choice, post-partisan and pro-pro bono. We believe putting citizens at the centre of every decision serves you and Canada well.
Small by choice
Jacquie LaRocque created the collective in order to remain close to her clients. At Compass Rose, we care about having a deep knowledge of every file and fostering close working relationships. No matter how high the stakes, or how big or small the mandate, we’re invested in your goals. We succeed when you succeed.
When you engage us—whether on retainer, on a project or as a partner—you get the broad and deep expertise of a consultant, and the care and attention of an in-house staffer. We’re full-timers on your terms.
We have long believed that government and organizations have more in common than they think. After all, they‘re talking to the same audience: Canadians. That means good public policy is about more than a win-win outcome for a single direct stakeholder. The public—the indirect stakeholder—matters, too. We believe that when policy decisions are framed, debated and decided with all Canadians in mind, we build a better nation. That’s why we aim for win-win-win.
That people-first approach informs everything we do. We often work in the bubble of Parliament Hill, but we think outside of it. At Compass Rose we work hard to align interests and voices, forge relationships with decision makers and thought leaders, and bridge parties, policy positions and perspectives.
We believe great work and good works go hand in hand. Our Principal Jacquie LaRocque has helped raise millions of dollars over the years for charitable organizations devoted to children’s causes, fertility, the arts, mental health, and international development. She looks forward to lending our talents in support of causes that matter to our clients, too.
