Background of the Organization
Copticom is a public relations firm supporting the Community of Practice on Climate Communications in Quebec, providing content, training and other communications services to organizations from diverse sectors in Quebec wishing to effectively communicate to their audience on the climate emergency. Copticom was chosen by funders to operate the new project Community of Practice in Climate Communications in Quebec, launched in 2019.
The Community of Practice in Climate Communication was launched in 2019; it serves over 120 organizations in Quebec, including environmental organizations, small local nature groups, youth and student-led organizations, labour unions, professional associations, health professionals and international development organizations. The Community of Practice responds to a need for communications tools and content to improve the effectiveness of climate communications in Quebec and to reach new audiences.
Copticom provides communications training, social media content, media review, and analysis of government
announcements to organizations in Quebec that communicate on climate change. With these services, the Community of Practice ensures organizations in Quebec are coordinated in their climate communications and more effective. The Foundation’s contribution will be used for staff and for training workshop materials.
