Some of Southside Communications’ most recent projects have been with the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, Evidence for Democracy, Make the Shift, the Indigenous Advanced Education & Skills Council, Genome Canada, Sapis Insight, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, WWF and the University of Ottawa. We try to update this page regularly with links to work samples.
Case study on evidence-based decision-making in Canada
Southside Communications wrote Evidence-informed decision-making in Canada: How a grassroots movement restored respect for science (for Evidence for Democracy, or E4D) — a case study highlighting how this was accomplished so other jurisdictions can use the information.
The Arctic Ocean: Looking below the surface
Southside Communications recently edited the final 2022 issue of The Circle for the WWF Arctic Programme.
Showcasing research for the Canadian Foundation for Innovation
Patti wrote a research profile about a UBC professor’s work connecting psychology to how people respond to the climate crisis.
Profiles for IRCC’s Immigration Matters series
Patti regularly writes profiles of newcomers to Canada for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Immigration Matters series. The series showcases immigrants who are making a difference in communities across Canada.
Feature writing for magazines and newspapers
Patti has written for a variety of Canadian newspapers, consumer magazines and trade magazines on a freelance basis, ranging from the Globe and Mail to Today’s Parent, the CBA National, the National Post, Vancouver Sun, Ottawa Citizen, Ottawa City Interiors and Canadian Healthcare Manager.

A feature written by Patti for National, the magazine of the Canadian Bar Association, won a 2002 CAJ Investigative Journalism Award. The story delved into a former Ontario government’s plans to privatize prisons.
