REGINA, SK—Hill+Knowlton Strategies has opened an office in Regina, Sask., focused on providing public affairs and communication services in sectors including natural resources, energy, environment, transportation, health and trade.

"Saskatchewan has grown into a real engine of the Canadian economy and that makes it a natural location for our newest office," says Mike Coates, president and CEO of Hill+Knowlton Strategies in Canada. "Opening an office in Regina is a key part of our national growth plan."

The Regina office brings H+K's office count in Canada to nine, alongside offices in Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City.

The office will be led by Regina native Lance Donison who joined the company in 2011. Prior to joining Hill+Knowlton, he spent 10 years in various roles with the Saskatchewan Party most recently as development director where he built and managed strong relationships with existing donors and friends of the organization.
