Ian Ross is employed as the team leader for the Ontario Ministry of Education‘s public affairs unit.

Since moving to Toronto in 2003, Ian has become heavily involved in the city’s public relations community. He has achieved his APR (accreditation in public relations) and served as president of the Canadian Public Relations Society (Toronto) in 2006-07. He also volunteers with Scouts Canada and the Canadian Cancer Society as a PR adviser. 

Earlier in his career, Ian worked as a public relations officer for several non-profit organizations and as a reporter/editor with several newspapers. He holds a Masters degree in communication from Simon Fraser University and a Bachelors degree in media, information and technoculture from the University of Western Ontario. He has also co-authored two scholarly articles on health communication in the Canadian Journal of Communication and Social Science and Medicine.

Outside of PR, Ian is always looking for his next challenge. In 2007, he successfully completed his first marathon, earned his scuba certification in Honduras and survived a 100 km, 4-day solo canoe trip through Algonquin Park.
