About Coast Comms

Integrating PR, Corporate and Crisis Communications, Public Affairs, Consultation and Engagement.

Coast Communications is a Vancouver boutique PR agency on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqeam, Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish Nations. We combine an in-house team with top-notch Associates who share a goal of providing the best possible, results-focussed counsel. 

With over 75 years of experience in corporate communications and public relations, we offer a full range of services.

We also provide issues and crisis communications support 24/7. If there is a threat to your corporate reputation, be it a privacy breach or cyber attack, environmental issue or HR challenge, call us at 604.767.0207. We can help. 


Coast Communications has been working with our clients closely throughout every phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most clients are moving out of crisis communications and into a phase of adaptation: that means strategic planning, much more internal communications and very creative new ways of getting our stories out, via media relations, stakeholder engagement or materials production

Our Services

Strategic Planning and Support.

Communications strategy isn’t rocket science, but it should be based on solid research, intelligence gathering and insights. We can help you with developing the strategy and forming a plan. If you need help implementing, we can do that too.

Support to Indigenous Governments

Coast Communications is here to support Indigenous governments with their communications needs. Tamara's background as an anthropologist working with the Stó:lō Nation, on treaty negotiations with local government and with First Nations clients provides unique insights.

Tanya Corbet, our newest Associate, provides advice from a communications and Indigenous perspective, with training and 20 years experience in PR and as a member and former Councillor of the Tsawwassen First Nation.

Media Relations and Media Training.

Do you need media to tell your story? Its still an essential path to getting your message out. We know media - we have worked in and with media and understand the protocols as well as personalities. Do you need to pitch a story out? Or build a full media plan for an event. We have experienced media trainers who have trained Ministers, Mayors and CEOs. 

Issues Management, Crisis Comms and COVID-19.

Organizations of all types can face a crisis at any time. Privacy breaches. CEO firings. Operational issues impacting customers. Cybersecurity and websites hacks. Major accidents. 

And a major crisis of our time: the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

The good news is our team knows how to prepare for and manage issues and crises and how to protect your corporate reputation. Are you facing an issue or crisis and need advice and support? Call us. We can help.

Internal and Employee Communications.

Internal and employee communications has always been important, but even more so during the COVID-19 pandemic. We can help develop a plan, or internal comms materials like newsletters or virtual townhalls.
