Leïla Copti is the President of COPTICOM Strategy and Public Relations, which she founded in 2011. For over 15 years, Leïla has been known for her sharp strategic sense and impressive efficiency in the field.
She is skilled at rallying people to a cause and bringing out surprising and fruitful partnerships, having cofounded and coordinated influential alliances that are still active in Quebec: TRANSIT, an alliance for increased funding for public transit in Quebec, and SWITCH, an alliance of businesspeople and environmentalists wishing to accelerate the shift to a green economy in Quebec.
Leïla designed several communication strategies as part of major public consultations, including the one leading to the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal’s Metropolitan Land Use and Development Plan in 2012. She organized several major events such as the first Canadian Roundtable on the Green Economy in April 2015.
Leïla excels at developing public relations strategies and shares her expertise with some 50 clients.
Before starting her own business, Leïla coordinated the first edition of the Forum Tremblant on sustainable development and corporate social responsibility in Quebec. In 2006, she became Editor-in-Chief of Réseau Vert, Greenpeace’s French-language magazine in Canada, and performed various projects for environmentalist Steven Guilbeault. Concerned by urban issues, she became a political and communications advisor at the Conseil régional de l’environnement de Montréal in 2008, where she helped advance Montréal’s environmental projects, including the biomethanization of organic matter, the protection of Mount Royal and the reduction of wood stove usage.
Leïla Copti is Vice-Chair of the Conseil régional de l’environnement de Montréal’s board of directors and serves on the board of Climate Reality Canada, which was founded by Al Gore.
