After spending his early career on Parliament Hill working with a Liberal cabinet minister, he left to join Allan Gregg's research firm, Harris/Decima, in 1983.

Since then, Bruce has worked as a leading pollster and communications counselor and was a founding partner of the Earnscliffe Strategy Group before returning to Harris/Decima as CEO from 2004 to 2008.  During his career he has advised leading politicians in both the Liberal and Conservative parties and has done election polling on several occasions. Bruce is responsible for the longstanding partnership between Harris/Decima and the Canadian Press.

Today, Bruce serves both private and public sector clients as a Senior Associate with Harris/Decima and is a Senior Advisor with NATIONAL Public Relations, Canada's largest public relations company.

Bruce's family has had a longstanding and diverse involvement in politics, which spans generations. They worked to establish the Jaimie Anderson Parliamentary Internship, which provides opportunities for young people to help get them engaged in national politics.
