I didn’t even know mekanism was in Canada. Which city, Toronto? What accounts does it have?


They aren’t

No, they will be the holding co’s main US agency, similar to Cossette in Canada

They merged the smaller US agency into mekanism because ... the smaller agencies were not making enough money.

Mekanims will stay in US and Cossette will stay in Canada. However, there's been some crossover work were Mek & Cossette has worked together. :)

why not merge the multiple small agencies in canada then
