Hill Times events topics and panels are generated from one of the largest newsrooms in the city, with a full time editorial team of 22, all with unique beats. Hill Times events are timely, in-depth and newsworthy.


With six niche publications there is no area of Ottawa’s political and policy world not reached by Hill Times Publishing.

This gives Hill Times Events targeted marketing and branding opportunities beyond the scope of the event itself into influential and niche communities.


At Hill Times Events we bring together top-level government, business, and third sector leaders to discuss the most pressing national issues of the day. The Hill Times public policy events deepen the understanding of vital topics, advance innovative solutions to major challenges and provide new perspectives. Through panel discussions, interactive debates, and forums, these events offer high-profile opportunities to examine matters involving Canada and the world. We address a wide range of issues that affect Canadians: from higher education, finance and technology to food, energy, and transportation.

Hill Times Events directs all editorial content including speakers, topics and moderators. Our programs are an extension of our journalism, and offer a balanced viewpoint and a diversity of speakers. The conversations are on-the record, open to all media and have multiple sponsors.

We welcome organizations that are looking for ways to increase their messaging and reach. As a valued part of Hill Times Events, sponsors are invited to make introductory remarks at events they host and their branding is widely integrated across our event materials, venues, and on-line presence, including pre and post issue awareness coverage in The Hill Times.


Hill Times Conference Session events provide organizations the ability to incorporate a Hill Times Policy Panel as part of an existing conference or convention program. Sponsoring organizations can combine two key objectives: provide dynamic programing and help advance their political PR program. The hosting organization is able to promote itself as the exclusive presenting sponsor and can utilize display advertising to market their conference or convention.

For Hill Times Conference Session events, the host organization is responsible for attendance marketing and direct costs associated with production, while Hill Times Events produces quality programming through editorial content and stage production. In keeping with Hill Times Publishing policy, editorial decisions including speakers are at the exclusive discretion of Hill Times Events.

Have The Hill Times organize a special panel for your Hill Day, association meeting or government relations campaign.
