Lucas is a skilled international government relations professional with more than six years of lobbying experience in the IT, telecom, and defence sectors. He leverages his experience working on the Hill and specialized knowledge in Canadian government decision-making processes to provide targeted engagement strategies for clients.

Lucas has experience managing government relations campaigns as a consultant and as an in-house lobbyist for organizations in Brazil. During that time, Lucas helped an association and ICT companies achieve tangible results by promoting policy change, securing tax benefits, raising their profile to key public sector audiences, and helping them navigate complex regulatory environments. Lucas also advocated for ethics and transparency in lobbying while he was a member of the Board of Directors of Brazil’s Government Relations Association.

Lucas holds a Master’s in Political Management (MPM) from Carleton University and a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) with a specialization in Government Relations from the Getúlio Vargas Foundation.

“The MPM program provided me with the practical knowledge I needed to better navigate the political sphere. With its hands-on approach, it is a great program for government-relations professionals to gain a better understanding of the underlying principles of the political world and also acquire new skills to craft advocacy campaigns and design creative messages to support your policy ask. It also greatly expanded my professional network in Ottawa.” – Lucas Veiga
