Public Relations Without Borders (PRWB) - a non-profit organization recognized by Revenue Canada- was founded in 2007 by a group of senior public relations professionals including NATIONAL’s founding chairman, Luc Beauregard.
NATIONAL has maintained a close relationship with PRWB since its inception; Luc Beauregard served as chairman of the board from 2007 to 2013, followed by Francine La Haye, Senior Vice President at our Montreal office. Francine continues to serve on the board as retiring chair.
Through its initiatives in a growing number of countries, PRWB has demonstrated that public relations can provide powerful leverage for social and economic progress. Together with several partner organizations, PRWB contributes to making sustainable improvements to living conditions among populations dealing with development challenges.
To accomplish this, PRWB carries out its missions in cooperation with NGOs, non-profit organizations and public institutions. Its volunteer deployments—professional counsel, training, coaching— are aimed at helping local organizations become more efficient, finding solutions to their problems and achieving their objectives, for the benefit of local populations.
