Alla Drigola Birk

Director of Parliamentary Affairs and SME Policy at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce


Alla Drigola Birk has been appointed as Director of Parliamentary Affairs and SME Policy at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, where she leads the Canadian Chamber’s federal advocacy efforts and the small and medium sized business policy file.

After graduating from the MPM program, Drigola Birk was part of the digital communications team at the Conservative Party of Canada leading up to the 2015 federal election. From 2015 to 2018, Drigola Birk worked for former Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts in various capacities: as communications manager on her 2015 federal election campaign, as her legislative and communications assistant in her Parliament Hill office, and finally as her Executive Assistant on her BC Liberal Leadership campaign.

Prior to joining the Canadian Chamber, Alla held the role of Director of Advocacy and Public Affairs at Impact Public Affairs, where she worked with clients to develop advocacy strategies and consulted on government relations activities on Parliament Hill and across Canada.

Drigola Birk credits much of her success to the MPM program. “The program helped me build a strong foundation in the intricacies of Parliament Hill and the nuances in executing successful public affairs work,” she said. “The wealth of information and experience that instructors and fellow students bring to the program meant I was able to hit the ground running upon graduation – and the program’s alumni are an invaluable resource to all past, present and future students.”
