Tim Barber

As one of Bluesky Strategy Group’s co-founders, Tim brings his network and over thirty years of strategic communications, political, federal and provincial government-related skills, and experience to our client files. His work in the energy, aerospace and defence procurement, healthcare, financial services and transportation sectors links our clients to the thinking and the decision-making processes in government.

His understanding of the strategic communications and decision-making environment comes from his time working as a political staffer in the offices of both the Minister of International Trade and the Deputy Prime Minister, and as a public servant working in the Privy Council Office, Federal-Provincial Relations Office, Employment and Immigration, the Senate of Canada, and the Electronic Commerce Task Force (Industry Canada).

In 2006, Tim co-founded Canada 2020, which has become Canada’s leading independent, progressive think tank, hosting over a hundred events that are dedicated to the debate and discussion of issues related to the strategic public policy role of the federal government.

Tim’s client work has included: Pembina Pipeline, Pathways Alliance, Air Products, Cedar LNG, Chinook Pathways, First Nations Major Projects Coalition, Power Corporation, Canada Life, Graymont, Leonardo Helicopters, Bombardier, Canadian Petroleum Producer’s Association, and LiUNA!.
