The story of Communica began in 2002, when three communications and stakeholder engagement specialists identified a niche for a different kind of communications firm – one focused solely on stakeholder engagement in energy and regulatory environments. Together they joined forces and created Communica. Three people became four, four became five. Soon there was a website and even a brochure, not to mention multiple complex projects on the books.
Recognizing market trends, Doug finally moved to Calgary and added expertise to create Communica’s Stakeholder Information Management (SIM) and Indigenous engagement teams. With these new departments, Communica swiftly grew out of its original Calgary office in the Inglewood neighbourhood to a central downtown office in the Beltline district.
