Chris Chapin


Chris Chapin is a political strategist, communications professional and digital expert. He knows the constantly changing media landscape, and what it takes to drive coverage and reach.  Chris specializes in breaking down complex messages into simple, shareable content that goes viral online.

Chris has over a decade of political experience having worked in senior roles provincially at Queen’s Park, and has managed campaigns at all three levels of government. He has served as the Digital Director to Political Parties and Leadership Candidates.

Chris is a familiar voice in Canadian media, as a regular panelist on NEWSTALK 1010 in Toronto.

In his spare time, if Chris isn’t trying to win a campaign, he’s likely trying to beat his best score on the golf course, or outdo Michael in the kitchen.
