Joseph Thornley and Terry Fallis established Thornley Fallis in 1995 as a traditional public relations and strategic communications agency with offices in Ottawa and Toronto. Both co-founders are still active in the firm, Joe as Chairman and CEO, and Terry as Vice-Chairman.

In 2000, Thornley Fallis became one of the first public relations agencies to integrate a creative services and digital marketing capability into our service offering with the launch of 76design.

In 2005, we again demonstrated leadership in embracing new  technologies and integrating them into our service offering by investing early and heavily in learning about and understanding social media tools and applications. Our firm is now a recognized leader in developing and implementing social media strategies and providing social media training.

In 2009, we launched what has now become an award-winning video production practice.

Most recently, in 2010, we launched Corum, an online public consultation platform.
