A group of key staffers is leaving Ontario Premier Doug Ford's inner circle as his government approaches the end of its first year in office.

In the past few days, government officials have announced that Mr. Ford is losing his top communications and policy directors, while two communications staffers are moving to federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer's office in Ottawa.

David Tarrant, Mr. Ford's executive director of strategic communications, told the Premier's Office in January he would be leaving after the budget to work in the private sector, said Laryssa Waler, Mr. Ford's executive director of communications. Mitchell Davidson, Mr. Ford's executive director of policy, is leaving the Premier's Office this summer, Ms. Waler said. It is not known where Mr. Tarrant or Mr. Davidson will be working.
