Graham Stewart Rises to Partner

Experienced, Trusted, and Results Focused,
CSG’s Top Leadership Team Continues to Grow

Graham Stewart is Canadian Strategy Group’s (CSG) newest Partner. His addition to the leadership team will continue to strengthen the firm’s offerings in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the rest of Western Canada.

Prior to joining CSG, Graham spent nearly 14 years serving at the highest levels of the Saskatchewan government, including being deputy chief of staff to Premier Scott Moe and director of house business and research to Premier Brad Wall. Graham was also chief of staff to the Minister of the Economy, Minister of Energy and Resources, and to the Minister of Crown Investment Corporation. He was also a member of the Saskatchewan Party war rooms for the successful 2011, 2016, and 2020 election campaigns.

In his various roles, Graham helped guide some of the most critical decisions in the province, creating jobs, attracting investment, and diversifying Saskatchewan’s economy. In June 2021, he decided to continue his important work in a different role, bringing his experience with the inner workings of government, policy development, issues management, and stakeholder engagement to CSG.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to join CSG as a partner. Since joining the team in 2021, I’ve seen first-hand the strength of CSG as a firm and the success we bring our clients. I look forward to building on that as we move forward,” said Stewart.

“Over the years, I’ve met so many amazing entrepreneurs, First Nations and municipal leaders who are passionate about bringing new opportunities to Western Canada. At CSG, I use my knowledge and experience to bridge a critical divide—helping connect their visions with government priorities. At the end of the day, they share an important goal—creating jobs and generating prosperity. My job at CSG is to be that intermediary,” he continued.

“It’s easy to see why Graham was so trusted and respected in Premiers Wall’s and Moe’s offices. You name the file—whether it’s agriculture, mining, oil and gas, health care, or infrastructure—he knows it inside and out and uses his strategic mind and tactical smarts to develop and execute solutions. As Saskatchewan’s population and economy continue to grow, so too will CSG’s presence, thanks to Graham,” added founding Partner Hal Danchilla.

CSG is Western Canada’s full-service public affairs firm composed of senior strategists, communicators, advocates, and negotiators who specialize in working with clients to drive decisions, change opinions, and frame public conversations to meet their goals. The firm was founded by Hal Danchilla and Michael Lohner in 2008. More recently, CSG has grown with the additions of Partners Cathy Chichak, Greg D’Avignon, and, today, Graham Stewart. CSG brings 140 years of experience working in and with governments of all levels, with offices in Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, and Vancouver.
