PR Strategies Inc was founded in 1993 by communications specialist Patricia Robitaille.
Prior to starting her own public relations consulting practice in Vancouver, Patricia worked for five years at agencies Burson-Marsteller (now National Public Relations), and Optimum Public Relations.

- Media training
- I have had the pleasure of working with Patricia for over ten years. She has been developing and executing media relations campaigns for our clients who are looking for exposure in western Canada. I have the utmost faith in her understanding of local media, and I can count on her to manage detailed campaigns, and to produce the kind of results that keep us coming back.
- Patricia started to work with us in 2008 to elevate our exposure. Since then she has generated a significant increase in positive media coverage for Commissionaires BC, more than we had previously experienced. We accredit this to her sound knowledge of public relations, her guidance and creativity. We are delighted with the outcome.
- It was a real pleasure to work with Patricia. She truly understands what it takes to generate strong media coverage. I couldn’t be more happy with the results she generated for our client, and I look forward to working with her again.
- I found working with Patricia to be an exceptional experience. Her personalized service and attention to detail were outstanding and the results were beyond my expectations. I will continue to work with her in future as I found the media exposure to be very valuable.
- I could not be happier with the work Patricia is doing for us. She is reliable, has a great rapport with the media, and I can count on her to cover every detail when executing our media events.
As a communications specialist working in the Vancouver area, Patricia has actively promoted her services to agencies and companies outside of BC who seek expertise in this market. The result has been the opportunity to work with a variety of large national clients. Often this work has involved developing and executing media relations strategies for BC, as part of a national campaign. Patricia is very experienced at both working locally and liaising with clients in cities across North America.
The advantage Patricia offers her clients is consistency, and access to senior-level strategic planning, advice, and execution. Patricia works with clients and the media directly; media relations is not passed down to junior staff. Clients recieve the same senior level of counsel available at larger firms, but at more competitive rates.
Patricia has well-established relationships with Vancouver media, and knows how to get through to this tough Canadian media market. Given Canada’s bilingual market, Patricia’s ability to speak fluent French greatly expands her access to media, and is a benefit to Quebec-based clients.
