BACKGROUND: With a population of 14.5 million, Ontario is Canada’s most populous province. The province that is ‘Yours to Discover’ includes Ottawa, the nation’s capital city, and Canada’s largest city of Toronto (which is North America’s fourth largest metropolitan area behind LA, New York, and Mexico City). As of 2016, 51.5% of residents in the Greater Toronto Area belonged to a visible minority group, compared with 13.6% in 1981.
OUR WORK: Our multicultural marketing team assisted in the campaign to contain coronavirus in the province. We executed ongoing messaging campaigns (via print and digital platforms) focused on mitigation of the virus. These ran in 19 languages including Urdu, Punjabi, Chinese, Korean, Hindi, Gujarati, Tamil, Italian, Polish, Greek, Ukrainian, and more. Our print multicultural marketing work included media recommendations, graphic services, execution, and reporting. Our digital multicultural work included programmatic execution also in an array of languages.
