2010 15-to-Watch (Agency): Alana Fontaine


Alana Fontaine

Director of Public Affairs, Impact Public Affairs

In Alana Fontaine’s six years with Impact Public Affairs, she has risen from a junior PR representative to serve as a senior staff member and the firm’s director of public affairs. Now, the boutique firm describes Fontaine as the solution to clients’ PR problems. Fontaine played a supporting role in the “Race Against the Mayor” Campaign for the Amethyst Women’s Addiction Centre in Ottawa.

Her campaigns for Canadian Urban Transit helped lead to more than $5 billion in federal funding, and her transit efforts were recognized as the “Best Government Relations” campaign of 2008 by the Canadian Society of Association Executives. — MT

Typical Day: “The best part about working at Impact is the fact that no two days are ever the same. Every morning on the way to work, I think to myself, ‘I wonder what exciting events  are in store for me today?’”
